A head on collision between two SP trains that happened on August 2, 1977 at Wicopee on the Cascade Subdivision in Oregon. Four people were injured.
These photos have been in my collection since 1977 and are showing their age. I received copies of the photographs from a Forest Service employee, whom I assume took the photos. These are possibly the only copies remaining, since the Forest Service office was destroyed by an arson fire in the mid 1980's.

I remember hearing that the "engineer ran a red", but I'm not sure of the complete details of the accident.

You mean there aren't any ex-SP management heads who could share more light on this hanging out here like they do on that other forum?
