The 2 locos stated are the only current accident victims don't think there were any more in the post budd car era.

Why so? We haven't had many accidents on the CR and execpt for the 2 that were already stated the rest have been with the cab car in the leading position.

Why does it always seem when there's an accident it's the cab car in front

1075 was damaged in its January 1996 tangle with a low-boy tractor-trailer and excavator in Wakefield. It was repaired and returned to service.

I saw 1075 pulling #217 outbound this afternoon and recalled the accident.

902 suffered an electrical fire. 902 was a work engine. It is now a parts donor for 904.

The Readville switcher is more of a "train" where the locomotive assigned can change. It can be any of the work engines (and before the gensets arrived, the Readville switcher could occasionally be a GP40MC)

If you read a posts back I believe someone already said that the 902/904 were the normal engines for the readville switcher prior to the gensets entering service.

It has not been scrapped it has been retired and stripped after the fire but it is still in the same spot as it has been for how ever long now.
