Description: Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "This "tossed salad" of railroad cars clogged a Rock Island switching yard today in downtown Oklahoma City after a Monday accident. Five cars some empty, and some loaded with wood and commercial products-- were piled up in a switching accident at the east edge of the railroad yard, just east of Eastern near Northeast 3. Rock Island supervisors in El Reno said they were unaware the wreck had occurred, but said traffic would not be hampered since a strike has closed the line for nearly a month. Damage was estimated at more than $5,000."
