The wreck train.
This is an enlargement of part of the previous photo, showing the wreck train.
The loco looks similar to the one involved in the wreck, but since #315 was the only C430
on the GB&W, I'm guessing it might be one of their C424s, based on what looks
like a distinctive bulge at the end of the long hood, just below the roof line.
The car behind it looks like an old 40-foot outside braced wood sheathed boxcar, probably too
old for interchange service but still used on maintenance of way trains.
This may well have been one of the GBW 8100- or KGB&W 5500- series
cars which were retired from revenue service about the time of this wreck.
