I found a Feb 19 1885 NY Times article. https://timesmachine.nytimes.com/timesm ... =true&ip=0
Not sure if it is public access.
Paraphrasing, at 8:00 AM on Feb. 18, a snowplow and 2 engines were sent to rescue a 3-engine passenger train that was stuck in a snowdrift on the Canandaigua Branch 3 miles from Batavia Station (which I assume means east of Batavia on the Peanut line) The rescuers didn't exactly know where the passenger train was and were going too fast on a straightaway and ran into it. The plow went under the 1st two passenger engines. One engine ended up on top of the locomotive pushing the plow (presumably the picture that was posted). A second passenger locomotive ended up on top of the plow. Amazingly, there were only 2 minor injuries.
Here's a link to the picture at the Library of Congress https://www.loc.gov/item/99401037/
Probably there would be more in a Batavia (or Buffalo?) newspaper, if anyone can dig that up.
