The purpose of this group is let anyone that likes American Steam Locomotives, know about Groups & or Projects that have, or in the process of planning, rebuilding,or restoring a Steam Loco to either Running Condition or a Cosmetic Restoration. Also where they can get info on how to help work on or donate to the cause. Also how to help support Organizations that run Excursions by donations or ticket sales.

One of the trade offs for being the most beautiful train ride in the world is having a tiny little wreck every so often: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Xg6NFBoqOQ

This photo is labelled "old train wreck on White Pass and Yukon Railroad"
Could this be the locomotive from our mystery wreck?

There seem to be a number of accidents with the White Pass.  Here is one from 2014. https://www.adn.com/alaska-news/article/23-treated-injuries-after-t...

SouthernGothic - do you happen to know which rail line that was on?
