CR 3184 4-27-79 Wilkinsburg, PA. Conrail SD40-2 6480 and GP40 3184 were running light (helpers returning from assisting a road train over the grade) when they were sideswiped by derailing or overhanging equipment from an adjacent track. The GP40 derailed and crashed through the concrete abutment/retaining wall and plunged down onto South Avenue. Fortunately, this happened when there were no vehicles waiting at the traffic light visible just beyond the underpass.
