BNSF G-SJOLAR9-26 vs. H-PTRSTL9-28
Title:  BNSF G-SJOLAR9-26 vs. H-PTRSTL9-28
Description:  At 22:55 on 12-29-2003 loaded grain train G-SJOLAR9-26 (BNSF 4648, NS 9361, BNSF 1032, 103 loads, 0 empties, 13,789 tons, 6087 feet) failed to stop at the red signal at the west siding switch at Pauls Valley. This trian struck train H-PTRSTL9-28 (BNSF 4349, BNSF 4866, ATSF 609, 22 loads, 45 empties, 4222 tons, 3809 feet) as it was taking siding. This resulted in the derailment of the three locomotives on G-SJOLAR9-26 and four cars (OCPX 62871, DOWX 79567, DOWX 79678, and NATX 82801) on H-PTRSTL9-28. This series of photographs documents the recovery process from first light through the ballasting of the installed track panels late in the evening. The main track was placed back in service at 15:05 on 12-30-2003. In this photo the power from the emergency ballast train (2 East Facing C44-9Ws have cut away from their trian and have pulled tank car CCBX 2494 (was coupled to NATX 82801) and re-railed C44-9W BNSF 4648 west of the derailment site to make room for the recovery process.

This resulted in the derailment of the three locomotives on G-SJOLAR9-26 and four cars (OCPX 62871, DOWX 79567, DOWX 79678, and NATX 82801) on H-PTRSTL9-28. This series of photographs documents the recovery process from first light through the ballasting of the installed track panels late in the evening. The main track was placed back in service at 15:05 on 12-30-2003. This photo shows the lead unit from train G-SJOLAR9-26 (BNSF 4648) which has been rerailed and pulled west of the derailment location.
