Remarks & Notes 
To give you a closer look at the damage on the what was the only operating D8.5-40CW from the front. It has officially been nine days since the collision that led to the derailment of NS 164-20 (Birmingham,AL-Chattanooga,TN) at Wauhatchie. both main one and two of the AGS North-End has since been open, but a few cars, and the lead locomotive that too the impact was left behind at the scene. Due to the significant damage on NS 8505 it look like the only option for this locomotive is the have it scrap on sight. Let take about the GE cab that saved the crews life. In the railfan world wide-cabs are often not like because it was commonly seen on modern locomotive, but compared to the tradition standard Cab locomotive the much more modern wide cab are up the FRA crash standards which can save a crew lives when it come to a crossing accident and much more.
