I seem to recall seeing one of the locomotive. If you dig through the NTSB archives, you might be able to find the report on the wreck, which would undoubtedly include photos.

I always heard stories about the locomotive coming through the street above, but only recently saw a picture of the hole in the pavement (maybe 1-2 square feet). I have no idea where I saw it, maybe on Facebook.

Thanks,

The diagrams show a lot of information.

Hard to tell in the dark black and white pictures. But it looks like you can only see Amtrak equipment in the crash photos.

That's the 1073, cut up on the spot.

I bought an extra Herald or Globe that day (at Charles St. Station); they both put out extras, the only time I can remember. I think the one I bought had the picture on the front page; it was basically a single sheet about the wreck wrapped around the regular edition of the paper. Only time I ever saw an extra paper. I wonder if I still have it in a box someplace.
