This wreck happened on the
morning of August 13, 1962 when the 4755 and 4772 plowed into the rear
of a stopped coal train at Parkesburg interlocking east of Lancaster, PA.
The brakeman survived as he was sitting in the rear cab of the 4772 on
the one corner that was not torn up.
The photos were taken August
15, 1962 at Enola roundhouse.
