Yard Derailment
Title:  Yard Derailment
Description:  Here's the scene and how it happened. The three locomotives (SSW 9647, UP 177, and UP 2537) ran across a switch in the yard, where the switch frog joins the rail of the track, the old rotten tie fell through, it broke in half, the frog fell through the tie and the rail broke out of it, coming up and knocking the brake shoe connecting rod loose from the rear axle on the fireaman's side of SSW 9647, and the rear axle jumped on top of the rail head. The rear axle was was knocked back over into the gage as I arrived. These two men drove up with the area wheel truck were at work repairing the brake rigging as the truck in the background unloads a new section of rail, a frog, and a few ties.

SSW 9647 Leading UP Freight Through Wilson Alley
Title:  SSW 9647 Leading UP Freight Through Wilson Alley
Description:  I lived in Tyler, Texas from 1989 through 1993 and I regret to this day that I ignored the numerous SSW units that came through Tyler. Not one picture -- and not many glances. The nose paint job on this unit has either ran or wasn't too well applied in the first place.
