    Hm, if it was semi I would say that it found out that the bridge was too low for it to pass under.

    How that could happen to a train is beyond me.... :) ;)

    SD40-2 #5921 was the trailing unit behind SD40-2 #5790 involved in a derailment in Mattawa, Ontario on December 21, 1998.
    20 cars carrying general freight were also involved and, while there were no injuries, both units were damaged.
    #5790 was repaired and returned to service, however, #5921 was apparently stored, awaiting repair, and for at least the last 1 1/2 years, has been stored awaiting disposal.
    Cheers!
