I came across a picture of a derailment of 6077 near Brantord station when she was only a month old. It mentions she was the coupled to a lead Locomotive when the accident happened and both Locomotives derailed and ended up on thei r sides down an embankment. I was wondering if anyone knows the ID of the lead Engine on this accident and could it be 6069 as she had an accident with severe damage to the front and firemans side...

It was Pacific 5570 and happened in February 1945.
