FEATURED "PIC OF THE DAY" APRIL 17, 2011
On April 12, 2011 at approximately 6am, Northbound #113 (North bay to Englehart) hits a washout at Mile 16.6 on the Temagami Subdivision.
First and foremost, no lives were lost in this very serious incident. The Crew (Dan and Phil) did survive the accident and are recovering.
As you can see in these photos taken from a plane courtesy of Anita Rioux's Father-in-law Rolly on April 15th, 2 SD75I's and an SD40-2 wound up rolling down a fairly big embankment. By the time this photo was taken, one of the SD75I's (I believe it to be 2102) is in the process of being uprighted, but obviously has a long way to go before reaching Temagami Sub rails again.
The first 6 cars of the northbound train also wound up on the ground but have been rerailed and returned to North Bay by the time this photo was taken.
Take Care Dan and Phil, And Thank You Anita and Rolly for sharing the photos.
