UP steam-era boiler incidents, other than 9018
There's plenty of information about the 9018 when researching UP boiler explosions, but google fails to turn up much else. I remember seeing a couple of photos in the book "A locomotive Engineer's Album" by George B. Abdill showing the aftermath of a crown sheet failure on one of the vauclain 2-8-0's, back when they were still numbered in the 1600-series. Doesn't give a specific road number or much other info. Does anyone know more about this one or any others on the UP that are less well known?

There was fair bit of discussion here: ( Another boiler explosion, or two! (trainorders.com) )
