Attached is the pdf version of this report from the ICC archives. You can
access this report, or any other through 1994 by going to:


Then click on the link to the railroad reports. The reports are organized
by year and appear to be in calendar order within the year.

I always thought that if photos of the various wrecks were available (and I
imagine somewhere in the US National Archives they are), these reports would
make nice articles for the Arrow. Maybe someone with the time and interest
could pursue this.

Happy reading!
