Wellington, OH, east of Willard.  A derailment here some 60 years ago took out the interlocking tower that was once here, when a missed signal resulted in a train hitting a crossover w-a-a-y tu fast: https://tinyurl.com/y4q25bm3

Damn! I've heard of plenty traction motor caused wheel lock ups, and locos derailing, but never heard of one 'falling out,' out, or off as a cause. But at track speed I guess anything's possible.

Cool vid watch 'em lock and slide wheels while they pile on!

 That train no longer exists. That traffic now moves on regular freights and sometimes on intermodal trains. Depends on the flavor of the month.

The one 1 main reason the "Juice Train" was finally killed, tR0LL. He used ta delay the train by NEVER completing a trip. He used to take 12 hours from his terminal (RG Yard) in Philly, ta some random siding, somewhere in Jersey. Maybe 40 miles from RG, if that.

CSX hated tR0LL, and so does everybody else! No wonder they gave him the boot!
