October 1974 Derailment at CP Lees Cross Roads
 
      It was a very foggy morning as an Eastbound mixed freight stopped just east of CP Lees.  An Eastbound coal train failed to stop for a red signal at CP Lees and ran into the rear of the stopped mixed freight.  Luckily, there were no train crew members in the caboose of the mixed freight.  The caboose was completely destroyed in the collision.
 
The photos were taken by a local resident.
