Major EL Ooops

Two "Big Hooks" (EL on the left and LV on the right) have been called in to rescue an EL derrick that apparently rolled over on the super-elevated curve at Owego while cleaning up a derailment (IIRC). The recalcitrant derrick's boom is being placed on a flat car under the watchful eyes of perhaps a few managers? The weather isn't helping matters any...
