Wreck on the PRR Low Grade Secondary west of New Bethlehem, PA
Title:  Wreck on the PRR Low Grade Secondary west of New Bethlehem, PA
Description:  Some hoppers overturned and tumbled down the bank into Redbank Creek. According to Dad, who was track supervisor at the time, this one was caused by track spreading. I believe I'm reading roster number 8723 in the locomotive in the lower right corner. If so, that makes it a Fairbanks-Morse Model H12-44. I'd appreciate any feedback from people more knowledgeable than I as to whether it looks like an F-M locomotive.
