Railfan Pictures of the Day - 11/29/2004

SEPTA Doylestown Line Hatfield PA November 29 2004

More photos of yesterday's collision. Part One is here.

Also Philadelphia Inquirer article, NBC 10 story and North Penn Reporter article.

It looks like the point of impact was the passenger side and the car was pushed by the train, however it did not appear that the car was flipped, despite its condition.
The car was stopped by the caternary support cable.
SEPTA personnel walk the first train through the area.
Shortly after the first train passed, a wrecker was brought in to clear the vehicle from the right of way.
Another view of Silverliner IV 413. Lesson for drivers: to paraphrase Dilbert "Do not mess with trains, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup".
