Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad Derailment

DL&W #1193(?) 4-6-2 Locomotive and passenger cars derailment after hitting a truck outside of Bloomsburg, PA along what is now Rt. 11 in the 1940's. (Photos were provided by Dennis Hirleman/Peter Llanso)

(Click on the photos to view a larger image.)


Locomotive #1199 off the tracks and dug into the ground.


A side view.


A lot of locals came out to see what happened or were they the passengers?


How about that telegraph pole and the old car.


I think the engineer left something in the cab.


View of some of the passenger cars that also derailed.




What is left of the truck that caused the derailment. You can also see Lackawanna Caboose #771 in the background
