Let it snow
A CSX coal train wrecks on the old Nicholas,
Fayette, and Greenbriar near Meadow Bridge,
WV in January 1996 in 3 feet of snow!
About a dozen loaded coal cars emptied on the old
NF&G. The coal is completely covered by a foot of
fresh snow on top of two more!
The coal train demolished this house from the inside
out. 100 tons of coal crashed through the side, filling
the house and knocking it off its foundation. No one
was inside at the time!
Cars were lying all over the place with the snow covering the
Cars were all over this man's back yard destroying property and
knocking down trees.
Quite a mess
This area is very inaccessible and clean up was quite difficult.
Bulldozers were brought in to clear the snow and coal off the track
so the cars could be pulled out.
With coal packed against the hill dragging these cars out will be
quite a challenge.
Not much left to salvage here with the cars all crumpled up.
Hard to find the tracks with all the mess.
Barely even enough room to walk let alone get a bulldozer in.
I'm not sure what these engines are here to do.
Possibly to pull the cars out?
