Loco 694 found in Lake Superior

Unread postby Garry K » Sun Aug 21, 2016 3:28 pm

Interesting story at http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/news/4098295-finding-694-106-years-after-tragic-crash-locomotive-located-lake-superior about finding an old Canadian Pacific locomotive that crashed into a rockslide and fell off a cliff into Lake Superior in June 1910. It was in the northeast area of Lake Superior, and the wreck was about 285 below the lake surface.

There's also a video at https://vimeo.com/176065209. Fortunately, I could turn down the sound on the cheesy music in the video.
