I was under the impression those HERX cars were Hercules tank cars, no? I need to get my eyes checked....

Yes, fabulous what some of these wreck reports tell us about what was in a consist!

What a great set of documents! I see that Hershey’s (HERX) lost 5 reefers in this wreck!

Without my ORERs, I am lost. Could anyone identify any of the cars listed in this accident report?

I noted that this train was tank car heavy, and that an unusual number of cars were destroyed.

I am unfamiliar with some of the trains of the P&WV, and this is sure one of those. A very interesting group of cars!

Any help is greatly appreciated!
