Subject: EL Wreck Report for 3/27/75
image/jpeg, 1200x1652 (24bit)

I receintly acquired some misc. EL paper, and there were three of the attached "Report of Main Track Blockage" which apparently was filled out when a derailment or other damage occurred.

The attached is from 3/27/75 at Starrucca Viaduct involving a PC derailed car on w/b PO-97 - I also have a report from 3/20/75 on a derailment at Lordville, and from 3/20/75 at Gulf Summit...this apparently when EL was diverting alot of fraffic via Scranton due to deteriorating track conditions on the Delaware Division.

Though only one page, you can see some interesting info. on these reports, including motive power, wreckers ordered, and damage done...

Interesting information...
