CRIP 384          
OKLAHOMA CITY OK October 1975 -- Vandals broke a switch lock, through the switch and tampered with the switch signal to show the wrong aspect. The result was that Rock Island 384 left the main track and came to rest at the end of this warehouse spur. The train was westbound on the westside of the city. I don’t recall if anyone was injured in this incident. EMD built the unit January 1969. In 1981 New Jersey Transit acquired it as NJTR 4138. In December 1987 Morrison-Knudsen rebuilt it into a GP40FH-2. Included in the rebuild was a cowl hood from F45 BN 6639.

AARON COOK General The location is at Rockwell Ave in OKC. The warehouse is still there as is the main line. The siding is more or less still there. Heavely overgrown and the turnout has been removed. 4/14/2013 10:37:02 PM
