Incidents

  • Drewland National Railways had its first derailment in 1977, when an EMD GP35 hauling 69 B&O boxcars loaded with dildos derailed near the border with Bettyland. Luckily, nobody was harmed in the derailment, and every single piece of rolling stock involved was returned to active service by 1978. The EMD GP35 suffered no damage whatsoever.
  • A collision occurred in 1988, outside of Dildo Ranch, when a DNR Castle Class 4-6-0 steam locomotive hauling 78 autoracks collided with two EMD SD40-2's hauling 109 Fruit Growers Express boxcars loaded with pineapples and oranges. The DNR Castle Class was damaged beyond all recognition, and underwent a major rebuild at the Bluebell Railway in the United Kingdom. The leading EMD SD40-2 lost it's cab as a result, and was rebuilt with a spare Deltic cab DNR had, giving it the nickname "The Ugly Duckling"
  • A highly-publicized hijacking occurred in 2008 of a train hauled by 2 EMD SD40T-2's and 1 EMD GP35 by a American terrorist organization called DestroyGayPornForKids.
  • Another hijacking occured in 2011 of a train hauled by a leased China Railways ND5 locomotive, numbered 0085, by Waternoose Incorporated.
