Indiana & Ohio Derailment
Tuesday, March 12, 2002
approximately 1:06 p.m., Indiana & Ohio Railway train L-1 derailed six
or seven cars on the IOCR Logan Subdivision at milepost 44.6, just north
of Enterprise. The train was bound for Lancaster with about fourteen
cars in tow. The power for the train was Pittsburgh Industrial
Railroad SW1500 no. 2342. The crew reported no injuries, but said
about a hundred yards or so of track was torn up. One car, a GACX
airslide covered hopper bound for Ralston in Lancaster, was the only car
on its top. At least one car was leaking, but it was only sand.
pictures were taken by Chris Burchett, who was able to get permission to
visit the site an hour after the incident occurred. They have been
posted here, with permission.
