Wreck of PRR Passenger Train #208
Title:  Wreck of PRR Passenger Train #208
Description:  PRR Baldwin Sharknose 5778 lies on its side in Kokomo, Indiana. This was PRR passenger train #208, which ran from Chicago to Cincinnati. The train had made it's regularly scheduled station stop in Kokomo, and was accelerating southbound when the lead engine was diverted by a mis-thrown switch onto an industrial siding, the curvature of which caused the lead unit to tip over from inertia. Fortunately the train wasn't rolling at high speed yet, and the engineer and firemen both survived. None of the trailing cars tipped over, and there were no injuries among the passengers or train crew. Subsequent investigation determined that the switch had been thrown by a young boy (approx age 10-12) who had somehow obtained a switch key, unlocked the siding switch, and thrown it ahead of the train.

PRR DR6-4-2000 #5782 - Pennsyvlania RR
Title:  PRR DR6-4-2000 #5782 - Pennsyvlania RR
Description:  Baldwin, November, 1948 2000hp According to Wikipedia, these Baldwin locos were produced exclusively for the Pennsylvania Railroad and were delivered in 1948 in the sharknose body style designed by Raymond Loewy. The PRR classified them as BP-20 (Baldwin Passenger, 2,000 horsepower or 1,500 kilowatts). They were originally used on top-flight express trains such as the Broadway Limited, but problems soon relegated them to lesser service. They ended their days on commuter trains along the New York and Long Branch in New Jersey. G.E. Lloyd photo
