    Details of a derailed boxcar along the BNSF Galveston subdivision in Chriesman, TX from October 2003. The wreckage had been pushed to the side of the ROW and awaits a scrap crew.

    Nice shot Ken. Question: Do you remember the specific location of this scene? I'll take a guess and assume this was a southbound train just north of the highway overpass (and interlocker)? Thanks! Drew

    I have to assume SP 7788 is in the dead line? It's last trace entry shows "delivered" to Ft. Worth, TX three years ago! Nice picture. Drew
