607 also derailed pulling the Powhatan Arrow at Franklin Furnace, Ohio in 1948
611 derailed pulling the Pocahontas at Tug River near Cedar, WV in 1956
613 Rear-ended a timed freight near Bristol, VA in 1957
I have seen and read the accident reports for the 604 and 611. Given that there are numerous photos of the 604 and 607 in the 1950's, they were obviously rebuilt. The only thing I have found regarding the 607 and 613 are these single photographs. Does anyone have links to the 607 & 613 accident reports?
It has been thoroughly discussed that the condition of the 611 following being rebuilt after the 1956 accident was a factor considered when the 611 was saved. Is it safe to assume that the 613 was scrapped following it's 1957 accident?
Were there any other wrecks of these locomotives that I'm not aware of? For a class of 14 locomotives, having more than 25% of them wrecked during their career is most unfortunate.
