The lowboy was empty, but it it had it's load that they were going to pick up, a giant generator, we'd be looking at a bent frame, derailment, the whole lot.

It's going to need a new cab, since the front is flattenend, but amazingly, it's still operable save for the brakes (as far as we know).....

YOU WERE WARNED :lol: :lol:

Well its derailed all over tracks 1&2 so theyre both close until further notice plus theres a large pile up of coal hoppers on the switch to the Michigan line. You can detour over our line if you'd like. First derailment in a year and a half and it happens on the MQT... :roll: :lol:

Not caused by MQT. Your beloved 8910 had it's front axle pick a crossover switch, and it subsequently derailed 8910 & the trailing unit, as well as 10 coal hoppers. The 8910 is rolled over, but the trailing unit is upright, just on the ground. The coal hoppers are all roled over onto tracks 1 & 2. Main #3 is colsed as a precaution.

Send a crew over to get the rear of your train, MQT forces are bringing in equipement from New Buffalo to get Main 1 cleared and ready for traffic.....only a pile of coal is in the way, no track damage yet...

Bring in the snowplow! :lol:

Not caused by MQT because your 8910 had a bad axle (bent to crap :lol: ) YOUR crew decided to keep going anyway, nd set that unit to idle, so it would roll freely....they gave it too much gas (15 MPH) and it picked the frog....

How could it have a bad axle when it was inspected YESTERDAY in Pittsburgh before it was activated? There was no problem with the axle then and plus our crews are trained to deal with these kind of issues.

It WAS a good axle before it met a 65-ft lowboy trailer! :lol:

It took on side into the guard rail, which meant the other side wouldn't go through the frog right....took a ride up and over, then the loco derailed and set off the chain reaction.

MQT will pay 25% of the damage, keep in mid we're going to have $1 million into repairing the mess, including a $250,000 custom frog :roll:

You're killing me, this is going to cost over a million dollars. And umm how did it exactly roll onto its side and bend the frame? And how about 50%.

Frame isn't bent unless you say so :lol:

It rode over the frog (front truck), then dropped down into the mini-ditch in the ballast between Mains #1 & 2. That rolled her...not a big enough wreck to bend her up...just damaged sheet metal & handrails

Ok so i guess it wont cost as much as I thought so whats wrng with 50%? If its just sheet metal and hand rails it will only cost about 19,000...

I did not come up with this scheme but it is part of our heritage. Thats like NS derailing the PC unit and repainting it in throurobred. PC is a big part of their heritage becuase without it there would be no CR, PC, and others. NYC originally wasn't going to merge with the PC so it is big that it happened, even though it was a complete failure...
