Train wreck involving Southern Pacific engine 2677
I acquired several photos printed from original negatives depicting a train wreck involving Southern Pacific engine 2677 and I also see a car or engine with C R or C P 2652 – on the back the person has handwritten:
Early Day Verdi, Nevada Train Wreck
Printed 8/8/86 from 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" negatives for Paul Elcano Reno, Nevada
I can find no such train wreck listed anywhere – closest I came was Truckee in 1907 – and the clothing in the photos is definitely 1800's – to early 1900's. ...
