How about just before a grade crossing mishap...

...and just after impact...

...and clearing the debris...

The only casulties were a few chickens, on their way to market, while the pick-up truck's driver and his brother were unharmed.  Apparently, the truck had stalled on the crossing, and while the boys had lots of time to push it clear of the crossing, they were unaware that the truck's driveshaft had dropped at the same time the truck had stalled, its free-end jammed against the rail.

The boys got a caboose ride to Elfrida, the next town, and the conductor had a couple of the chickens plucked and cooked before the train pulled into South Cayuga.

Show me something else gone wrong, please.

Can't ever get tired of first generation diesels, show me more!

Rule 2: I make the rules.

Rule 3: Illuminating discussion of prototype history, equipment and operating practices is always welcome, but in the event of visitor-perceived anacronisms, detail descrepancies or operating errors, consult RULE 1!

I would have thought there would be more multiple diesel units. It's been a day since Wayne's beautiful photo. 

Here are two sets of F-units. ... FT ABBA and F7 ABA.

Please show a steam double header.

Nobody has posted a steam double header. I will revise my request. 

Please show either a steam double header or any large steam locomotive.
