Almost forgot I had a video I could post as well!




Although this one is mild compared to yours, Charles!
Your 505 Mike seems to have almost as bad luck as my Ruby #11 (which has hit the ground no less than 3 times!
- I just didn't have the camcorder rolling when Ruby wrecked!
).

We had a BIG ol' wreck at the Botanic last week. 2 streamline coaches on the Super Chief fell over, knocking freight cars off the train on the next track and dragging the 2 F units pulling it to a stop. The freight continued on around, leaving a trail of hopper cars until the engines came around and smashed the whole works from behind, under the footbridge.

Nice wreck photos!!

I'd suspect that LGB tank car. Mine have been derailing on me a lot when backing!

Gomez would be proud of all of you.

Bryan looks like you did a big one. Just like the 1 to 1 boys. Guess we need to give the train crew 30 days off for not paying attention. Good thing the garden inspector does not live closer. May even have to send FRA over
Later RJD
