- I can't believe that they didn't clean those derailments up? I also can't
believe that they are still there after all thses years...
- At the time this happened ( I am looking up this info now???) I know it was
in the late twenties or early thirties?? the Steam powered loaders as well
as some of the well used equipment had reached the end of it's usefull life.
The loaders that used steam were becoming obsolete like the engines and they
were a dime a dozen! At this point most had been converted to diesel or
scrapped altogether and the loader itself was most likely the only crane
they could have used to salvage this wreck?? they also left a great little
velocipeed and we found some of it still there! I have a shot of it taken
in the 1970's when it was still in working condition! there is a lot of
rail still in there as well
