ACL E8A #547greenspun.com : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread
I have heard that ACL E8A #547 was wrecked prior to SCL, and therefore doesen't appear on the Amtrak roster. So, I was wondering when/where the unit was wrecked, and what became of it.
Thanks for any info,

There was a washout and the unit went into the mud. There was no ICC report for this accident.
