Derailment Remnants (Oddity Photo Submission)
Author: rrnut_99

The remains of a C&NW ACF covered hopper after it was "scrapped on site" following a derailment. Location is near MP 114 on UP's (CNW) Geneva Sub in Illinois.

As soon as UP starts collecting all their "hobby fees", they will have the money to clean up the mess.

There's a couple of good wheelsets and a drawbar that looks like it could be re-used.

Don't believe they can be re-used if involved in a derailment. (Read that once on the Internet, so it's probably not true).
