"Well, here's another fine mess you've gotten me into."
This hump-assigned GP38-2 was seen outside Macmillan Yard Diesel Shop on shop trucks, looking very beat up.
It is hoped that nobody was seriously injured.
Hump pullback speeds don't need to be really fast, but a lot of energy got absorbed by CN 7500.
For hump switching the only active brakes are on the engines and slugs; a long cut of cars cannot be stopped as fast as a train. If anyone has information about this particular mishap, please comment.
Not far away was hump slug CN 512 with serious body damage but still on its own trucks.
A pair of damaged Blomberg trucks off CN 7500 were loaded on flatcar CN 667502.
The next time I saw CN 7500 was mid-April 1995. It was back at Mac Yard in clean CN North America paint scheme (without map), fully repaired and not showing noticeable scars from its crash.
I used to enjoy the privilege of taking pictures here, but things have changed; the last time I got permission was in the latter 1990's.
