    Modelling details:
    note the way the trucks fall off the cars, and the axles (axleboxes) fall out of the side frames.
    Photo 7: new weathering detail: black streak on floor just above the wheels.

    Photo 7: A ground level view of the suspended hopper and wreck scene. The BSEX covered hopper is for the Badger Ethanol plant.

    Wow. Anyone know how the de-railment started in the first place? Too fast around a bend, bad connection between cars, etc? Some great shots of the underside of the cars for detailing, or like has been mentioned, weathering. Wonder if Deano knows about it, he likes the WSOR

    I think you'll find some more info here

    From TrainOrders.com

    The Wisconsin & Southern put 13 on the ground just west of the Rock River bridge south of Edgerton Wisconsin.
