Crane used to move wrecked locomotive from crash site in Ireland.
Disasters: Irish train wreck.
Major destruction. Shot of men working to wrap chain around wreck of huge locomotive engine, the chain is connected to hook on a large crane. Pan to left: the engine leaning at angle, much debris in foreground, with crane in midst of the disaster. Panning shot engine being lifted by the crane, more broken boards, twisted metal, etc. at site of wreck. Man in foreground stands facing away, watching.
Modified WPA record.
Dec 2010: Mr. Capewell identified the train as a Locomotive no.1394, and Lancashire and Yorkshire highflyer 1400 class Atlantic 4 4 2 engine. This would suggest the clip is not, in fact, from Ireland!
