Hi Gang,

At the library today I found an incredible book:
Train Wrecks & Disasters: A Pictorial & Chronological History As Reported By the Press : Rochester & State Line, Rochester & Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburgh, Baltimore & Ohio
by William Fries.

It has an amazing series of photographs that afford one a view of steam locos and rolling stock little seen: frames, inside of trucks, tops of locomotives (that turned over onto their side), and a host of MOW and wrecker shots.

It shows available to order so....
