Powerplant was served by LV. There was a tragic collision in that general area, I believe a bit farther north. An EMD switcher with cars for the U of R and a doodlebug came together with the loss of...2 lives? in the ....late 1940's? Both those points are from recall and subject to correction if I'm wrong.
: From a 10-year old thread on here, the following posted courtesy of JR - "The LV doodlebug / switcher was on Jan 27th, 1940, resulting in two crew fatalities." That thread is viewtopic.php?f=128&t=47977
