Survivor

I call this train car "survivor": In 1939, the train of which this car was a part, derailed while going 90 miles per hour on a bridge in Nevada. Five passenger cars were sent into the river below the bridge and three more went down on the embankment. Out of 13 cars, only five stayed on their wheels including this one which was put back into service on another train.
