Truck Vs. Train

Truck Vs. Train

The aftereffects of a collison the night before between MM&A train and a heavily loaded semi. The accident demolished the trailer and derailed the engine and two cars.
That Dash 8-39B isn't looking that good. It looks like there will be a lot of repairs to be made. BTW, whats left of the semi-truck doesn't look like it faired too well either.
There was a fair amount of damage to the nose. As it was said previously, it has been repaired, and repainted in the MM&A's paint scheme, the second unit to be painted. The trailer was ripped in half, but the driver was lucky the truck had cleared the crossing, leaving the truck relatively undamaged.
