  • SO LONG, DRGW 3080
    Posted Tuesday, November 20 2018 at 2239 h MST
    D&RGW 3080, now Wheeling & Lake Erie 304 and upgraded to a GP40-3, was wrecked in a head-on collision with WE 106 (a high-hood GP35 built as Southern 2661) outside Akron, OH, yesterday. Fortunately, none of the crew were injured, but the wreck will almost certainly be the end of 304 / ex-3080. The frame appears to be significantly bent, and the front end is demolished. My guess is that 106 is also a lost cause as well, given its advanced age and severe front end damage.

    For those who are Trainorders members, there's photos of the incident [here]. -
