White Pass & Yukon #114

White Pass & Yukon #114

WP&Ys #114 MLW 105 ton 1200 H.P. Loc setting lashed to a flat car on the east side oh the Balmer hump yard in Seattle Wa. Dont know much about this wreck,saw on the forum side that it wrecked at Bennett,BC,Killing one and injuring 3 and may have been a runaway?I have rode this line and its one hell of a climb up to the border at Lake Bennett,out of the yard at Skagway AK.
My 2006 Canadian Trackside Guide says it is a BBD (bombardier) RSD-35W, built in 9/1982, serial number M6123-04. It also states that it was stored in Montreal QC, from 1982 until 1995.

To me, it looks like a MLW M-420(w) or a BBD HR412(w)....... see this link, near the bottom of the page, the 3500's, for comparison : http://www.trainweb.org/rosters/KPR.html
