1910 Wreck of CPR 694 in Lake Superior Dive Video

Unread post by trainjunkie47 »

A locomotive that derailed and plunged from a cliff into Lake Superior has been discovered after 106 years.

Canadian Pacific Railway Locomotive No. 694 was discovered by shipwreck hunters in July, about 230 feet deep in the waters of Lake Superior, near Marathon, Ontario.

The wreck claimed three lives on the morning of June 10, 1910.

The 694 had been operating for only four years when it crashed into the lake.

The train crashed into a rock slide that had covered the tracks, subsequently sending the locomotive off a cliff, and into the lake.
