Train wreck at Bemis  Bemis train wreck
 
Locomotive 380, wreck west of Bemis Crossing, August 1922. The engine off in the background in the top and bottom picture is Mallet # 1202, one of the large articulated locomotives. Scotty Mallett tells us "That's Frank Washburn's wreck. It happened in august of 1922 when the tender brake beam failed, the locomotive jacknifed and flipped over. Mr Washburn was taken to the hospital with a sprained ankle and some bruises."

Bemis is the area near Madam Morey's Inn Unique, Today's Notchland Inn.
This is the Bartlett Station after the fire that destroyed it in 1927. Another one, smaller was put up in place of it a short time later.

The photographs above were sent to us by Richard Garon, who's grandfather was a Stationmaster in Bartlett during the 1920's.  Rick didn't know much about the pictures, but Scotty Mallett, who is a railraod history expert, identified all the photos and provided a little story about each one...almost like he had been there...but we know he was not.  Read Scotty's well researched and written article about The Wreck of the 505, Here
