EL wreck 12/1973

Postby nydepot » Mon Aug 13, 2018 11:12 am

I'm looking for a location of a 12/1973 wreck on the EL that involved #3632. I have a photo dated 12/12/73, not sure if it happened that day or the previous. No location. Google is not being helpful on this one.

Thanks,

Charles

Do you have a pic of the actual derailment? Not sure if this helps, here is #3632 (trailing) westbound at Kent, Ohio on Dec 11, 1973. http://www.railpictures.net/photo/575340/

Pic. Lots of hills and right next to a river. Single track. I was thinking the line or connector from Lanesboro to Scranton.
