A WCSR train travelling at 67 MPH has derailed west of Wolcottville due to extreme wear on the WCSR - PC diamond, the crew is trapped under a C40-8W as it rolled into a ditch. Only the first 23 cars derailed and the main is completely blocked. Both units will be repaired but will need to be cut up a bit to save the crew.

Is my diamond with the GR&I Branch blocked? I can dispatch the wreck train out of Ft. Wayne if needed to assist with cleanup efforts.

The wreck train and a rail train with replacement diamonds are on their way and should probably have arrived there by now since I sent them out at 2pm today.
