A bad day for trains and another Kodak Instamatic moment almost 51 years ago. West bound train on the CN Grimsby sub hit a low boy trailer on the crossing at Nash Road in the east end of Hamilton. It was quite a derailment, the crew suffered serious injuries and fortunately non life threatening. It must have been quite a ride down the embankment. I'm not sure which unit was leading, on the bottom of the pile was CN 3641, 4515, 4578 with 4016 resting on the edge of the large concrete bridge over a creek.
This image is a scan of a print that I took that day. Unfortunately the photo is starting to deteriorate and did  not scan well
