7/04/05 Thank you for visiting! Here, you'll find pictures of train accidents and derailments taken by my son while on the job, informative links, resources, forum, live chat, email, kids page and a memorial for Ben. Please take the time to meet the person that took these pictures. You'll also find "no right click" and although that may be an irritation, it's the only way I could find right now to protect Ben's photos. You can bookmark and open pages in other windows off of your browser tool bar. Any link outside of this site will open in a new window so you may need to set your browser to accept pop-ups.
If you find a link or resource that's helpful to you, let them know how you got there. If you use the Train Wreck forum and have received information there, please acknowledge the person with a thank-you, in particular, Ray State. He answers many, many questions and that's on his time. Richard Alumbaugh has posted much information also, as well as sending it to me, on train wrecks. Also if you haven't found what you're looking for here, visit North East Rails. He has extensive information on rail accidents with other rail related information. Don't forget to sign the guestbook.
These are 2 of several photos that weren't with other sets, just mixed. The others coming soon. Click to enlarge
Two diesel engines sit crammed under a 100-year-old bridge on the main CSX east-west line. Four engines that were linked rolled away from an Akron terminal yard at 6:45 yesterday morning and struck a fifth train. CSX has yet to determine how the trains got loose. Cranes roll up to the crash site of two CSX diesel engines stuck under a bridge. The cranes, or sidewinders, arrived yesterday to remove the trains, each of which weighs 150 to 180 tons.
