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.

New ex-TSCR SD60M's will be rebuilt to SD60MAC4H's. Only four axles will be under power and "H"(added weight) and AC motors will help with heavy trains in the mountains of Mexico and the Lake Shore Areas.

WCSR has announced that the Adrian Subdivision is up for Short or Long term lease. The line has DT&I installed signals and 100 LBS jointed rail with two passing sidings. It runs from Malinta, OH where there is a small yard, through Napoleon, OH, and on to Adrian, MI. Interchanges are with the WCSR at Malinta, TSCR at Napoleon, NS in Archbold, TSCR in Adrian, and the ADBF in Adrian.
