R160B 8913 crashes into an tree!!, and some photos from today


Recommended Posts

You read the title correctly, an 160 crashed into a tree on sea beach line today i was on the train!! Heres the story, i was riding 8913 on the sea beach line everything is going fine until the train went BIE, then a few seconds later BAM we hit something. I guess that strong winds blew part of a tree on to the ROW. So the T/O gets out and looks on the side on the train, then a few seconds later an TSS comes and looks at the train. Then after a few minutes the remove the remains of the tree and throw it on the other track. So after a while the T/O tries to move the train, he does then after a few seconds BAM! sparks and smoke come from the third rail. Then the train was disabled and cound'nt move. Then the C/R says over PA system that an rescue train is going take us passengers back to the station. So all the passengers crowd into the last two cars of the train. After a while the rescue train comes and we had walk though the cab walk over a gap to get on the rescue train. Then the rescue train took us to the station.... Now the photos from today....
