Caption: On the morning of June 10/75 N&W train DN90 suffered a broken traction motor gearcase cover while moving at track speed through Simcoe on the CN Cayuga Sub. The resulting derailment caused lead F7 3659 to plummet off the Highway 24 bridge and burst into flames, killing the crew. Trailing unit 3725 derailed but remained upright. Two days later, on my lunchhour break from TH&B Brantford office duty, I drove to the aftermath and shot 3659, after it had been retrieved from the overpass and set aside in preparation for movement.
