Happened at Mile 38 on the Redditt sub. I recently received some similar images. Anywhere there was glass, the pulpwood logs penetrated those area including the number boards. Hitting a loaded logging truck was a great fear for me, long logs loaded on a truck is quite an obstacle and would most likely clean the locomotive off at frame height. Doug

Dear...god...
My first reaction was a string of unprintable words...I'm glad the crew was ok. I think I'd need a relief crew and relief underwear if I escaped that!

Ex. CN 5146

Hey guys, I figured I'd share some old C-41 scans I was emailed last night from an Engineer I work with. He received them from a Teamster Union member in Canada. Shown is CN 5146 after an impact with a semi hauling pulp wood.

This is all the info I have:
Redditt Sub, mp.38, Sunstrum, ON.
Engineer hit the floor and head brakeman took cover under the front middle windows, against the wall. Both survived
