Will 8099 be the first heritage domino to fall and be repaired and painted black? Knowing NS, they will sell it...

You know that wasn't on the train crew's to do list. Am glad the news coverage was able to report the crew was extricated pretty much unharmed. That trailing unit ain't exactly unharmed, though. And that Southern paint is so pretty. I wonder how much stress a rollover puts on the bolts holding engine block and alternator to the frame.

Welp, there goes another heritage.

Amazing the strength of the IBCs (International Box Connectors). Even with the containers dumped out of the well cars in a derailment, the "boxes" are still held together!

It does not appear that there are any rock slide detectors in the vicinity of the signal bridge mast. Slide detectors would probably have triggered a stop indication......

Anyone have a number on that trailing unit?
Posted by NorthTexasRailfan on December 15, 2021 
Richard- The trailing unit was ES44AC 8175.

Also, this was actually a day after the December 10th - December 11th Severe Weather outbreak, so Pittsburgh might've been hit by it, I do not know, Kentucky was the hardest hit of it

8099 arrived at Altoona last night.

8175 was DEFINITELY a total loss
