Gents,
Somewhere there's a famous pic of a few GP9's that lost their brakes, ran away, and fell into the river at an open drawbridge. Anybody recall this pic or where I can find it? I have a customer that would like to see it.
Thanks!

Trains magazine, L/1960s-E/1970s. Sorry so vague but do not recall the exact month and year of the issue involved.

Caption mentioned that the alarm bell was still ringing in the dead loco(s).

The accident happened on the NWP just west of Napa Jct.
