This is a really interesting look at two trains that appear to have been in the same place at the wrong time. The locomotives actually appear to have withstood the crash, but the rest of the cars have either crumpled or derailed. The train on the left appears to have been carrying large cloth bags of something and a crew of 7 overall-clad men is busy unloading and stacking them off to the side. The cars on the other train are completely trashed and buckled. There are 2 other men visible at the left side of the image, one of whom appears to be an official (his military-style hat has some type of badge or cap piece on the front). There are also 3 figures visible in the foreground watching all the action.

Unfortunately, no photographer info is shown and there’s no indication as to where this picture might have been taken. There are some markings on the trains, though. One of the cars on the left is marked “121”, and markings on the locomotive at the right read (I think) “C. & N. W. B. (or D.)

The image measures approximately 7” wide by 5” tall, with an overall size of approximately 9-7/8” wide by 7-7/8” tall. The image is amazingly crisp and clear, but does show soiling (especially at the left edge) visible against the light colored sky. The card is in fair to good condition, with soiling, minor wear to the corners (this is most visible on the reverse), slight cupping and what appears to be faint water marks along the left edge of the card.

Please see the "Shop Policies" section for information on combined shipping and all the small print. Thank you!
