Inside the Shed
A view down what was the right of way. There were 2 tracks sheltered under the snow shed.
Still Protecting the Line
One of the many streams that the snow shed still shelters the route from, 95 years later.
Start of the Debris Field
I decided to head down into the valley below to start searching for evidence of the 1910 tragedy. It wasnít hard to find the debris field. One of the first pieces I found was some sort of mounting flange bent around a rock.
Old Coke Can
A tin Coke can. I briefly looked online to try and date it, but the results are still out. I do not believe this to be a part of the tragedy
One of the larger pieces, itís about the size of a household water heater.
Another Large Tank
This one was all the way down the valley next to the Tye River. Itís about 24 inches in diameter, and 6 or more feet long. From the amount of studs around the access hole, it looks like it may have held steam at pressure.
A brakemanís step (U-shaped) among other debris.
I believe these are steps from a passenger coach. These too were all the way down at the bank of the Tye River.
Large Steam Tank
This is one of the largest pieces of debris. Itís about 30 inches in diameter, and 8 to 9 feet long. It looks to be the site of where 2 engines came to rest.
