Indiana & Ohio Derailment
Source: Chris Burchett

Tuesday, March 12, 2002

     At approximately 1:06 p.m., Indiana & Ohio Railway train L-1 derailed six or seven cars on the IOCR Logan Subdivision at milepost 44.6, just north of Enterprise.  The train was bound for Lancaster with about fourteen cars in tow.  The power for the train was Pittsburgh Industrial Railroad SW1500 no. 2342.  The crew reported no injuries, but said about a hundred yards or so of track was torn up.  One car, a GACX airslide covered hopper bound for Ralston in Lancaster, was the only car on its top.  At least one car was leaking, but it was only sand.
     Several pictures were taken by Chris Burchett, who was able to get permission to visit the site an hour after the incident occurred.  They have been posted here, with permission.
