Remarks & Notes 
In a photo taken in 2007, an empty coal train passes by the remnants of a small derailment on the S-curved Crater Loops. Sources tell me that this was caused by a "stringlining" of the train where the cars were simply yanked off the tracks due various pushing/pulling forces of the locomotives.
