Remarks & Notes 
More info from photo 641007 this show whats left of the truck without truckside. Remember we were going around 60mph when the truckside let lose at Astico on Christmas day 1978. The real lucky side of this was NO derailment took place....considering it was almost 4 miles from where the truckside was found and where we stopped. The wheels cut right through the boxcar floor and the brake pipe placing the train into a slow emergency application keeping the train stretched. The car was right behind the engines and I believe it was a car load of spuds from Othello,WA..
