On Thursday, October 16, 2014, at 10:25 a.m. central daylight time, a northbound Arkansas & Missouri Railroad Company (A&M) work train locomotive (work train) collided with a stopped southbound A&M excursion train at milepost (MP) 368.25 in Brentwood, Arkansas.1 The excursion train stopped because it had lost track adhesion and was not able to move up the 1.1 percent grade. The work train traveled north to rescue the stopped excursion train and collided with the excursion train. The work train’s speed at impact was about 24 mph. Thirty-nine passengers and four A&M employees were transported to local hospitals and medical centers with non-life-threatening injuries. One of the damaged passenger cars released about 40 gallons of diesel fuel from a generator fuel tank, but the fuel did not ignite. The A&M estimated the damages at $178,500. At the time of the collision the wind was calm with scattered clouds, and the temperature was 66°F.
