Philadelphia & Western
This wreck which happened at Penfield Station. They were working on the inbound track at the time and were single tracking around the work crew.  Number 207 was a local car inbound and had stopped to pick of passengers at the Penfield Stations.  The flagman also sent 208 into the single track and he was deadheading to the barn, he was not told about the other car in the single track and was moving at a good rate of speed when he came around the curve into Penfield the other car was just pulling away from the station when it was hit from behind.  I was there about 45 minutes after it happened to shoot these few photos.
