Found this old negative taken off of the Wilhelm Rd overpass of a wreck in which the N&W collided with a CN running same direction, eastward; at a junction on March 1, 1978. (I posted a photo and explanation about 8 years ago; #12614)
One can see the canal bridge in background; and off to the left in front of the pile of twisted rail cars; the "CN Robbins" sign, which managed to survive unscathed. Photo taken at sundown, when I had seen enough.

    Odd how they missed the signal…

    One can see studying this closely the cutoff to go to brookfield remained double track in 1978. Also those ctc signals in the far far distance are for yager back when the humberstone was ctc…
