April 21, 2009 Benning Yard Derailment


On Tuesday April 21, 2009, a lite power power move derailed in Benning Yard resulting in CSXT 4594 landing on its engineer's side. No crew members were injured. In addition to the usual hand rail damage, the cab has been shifted above the top of the nose and the radiators and dynamic brake portions of the long hood also sustained damage. 4594 became a parts source because of the damage sustained and was later scrapped. Thanks to Al Moran for the photos and descriptions.
