    This is where 1143 fell into Eaton Wash in 1943. It was on the inbound track, and my dad remembered seeing the carbody and the trucks heading toward LA on separate flatcars. No reports of injuries, and the car was repaired and returned to service. As I mentioned regarding another photo of 758, at last report it still exists in a suburb of Buenos Aires, Argentina, having outlived all the other 732-759 class by being converted to a work motor.
