History Corner - Derailment of Canadian Pacific Railway freight train

Theodore, Saskatchewan, late August, 1956. It was mid-afternoon, when an eastbound through freight train ran into the back of a way freight that was in process of unloading at the station. The moving train, not fully in control collided with the caboose of the way freight. The engine tipped sideways, smashing into the station. No one was injured.
