Hi car folks,
Just a quick note to confirm for Richstang....RR06 has for certain 2759 sent to ABJ FORD INC. TRENTON ILLINOIS Replaced by 2762  these are typed numbers not hand written. The upper left has a circled F357  and the upper right has 6/14 circled then the shipping date has Jun 22 1967 stamped in place..Hope this helps. I think  Dave M will have copies. Thanks also for letting us know about
Hadley transport contact info even though we need an employee from the 1960's  we might get somewhere by following up on this contact.
Regards R.R.

Hi RR,
I'm going to send you a PM on this replacement car VIN number. I'm not sure you understand what I'm questioning, per the registry footnotes.

History repeats itself. http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=1699769 This may be the spot to hit with the metal detectors. The Shelby's were headed to the upper midwest and the track that follows 40 is the route. These cars are off in the sand. There may have been only 14 Shelbys, the 15th a railcar could hold may have been some pedestrian Ford headed east.

NEWS: Train Derails near Ludlow

Date/Time: March 3, 2021, 1:00 p.m.

Location: mile East of Ludlow near National Trails Highway

San Bernardino County firefighters and haz-mat specialists responded to a reported cargo train derailment near Ludlow. An estimated 25-35 railcars derailed, some carrying hazardous materials.

The scene was quickly accessed, and Haz-Mat personnel found one round tank car leaking a flammable liquid known as denatured alcohol (similar to ethanol). SBCoFire and BNSF Haz-Mat were able to enter the tank car and mitigate the hazard. Overall it is estimated that several thousand gallons had leaked from the unit.

There were no injuries and the cause is under investigation. About a 2 mile stretch of National Trails Hwy. near Ludlow remains closed. There was no impact to nearby I-40.

San Bernardino County Fire and BNSF remain on scene to ensure no other leaks and oversee the extensive clean-up process.
