Remarks & Notes 
Something seems to have gone terribly wrong here. Well, not entirely. The Rio Grande had a controlled derail switch leading from their westward main track to yard trackage at Geneva Works. A Baldwin remote control switcher has gone through the derail by mistake, plowing dirt without fouling the Rio Grande main (by design). United States Steel 38, a Baldwin DS-4-4-10 shows signs of a hard life working at Geneva. The 38 was built the Bessemer & Lake Erie Railroad 282 in March of 1949, acquired second hand to work at Geneva in January 1962. The damage ensued at the yard lead derail may have hastened the demise of old #38.
