Photo caption reads: "Train accident a rail mystery: A Los Angeles City firefighter surveys damages from a freight train derailment in the Highland Park area. No injuries were reported, but five of the 57 cars were tipped over and four cars were tilted, but still on the track. What caused the derailment near the end of the train's trip from Chicago to Los Angeles is unknown. The derailed cars hit a telephone pole and downed some power lines in the accident at Marmion Way near Avenue 43, city fire spokesman Henry Amparan said. Santa Fe railroad spokesman Gene Flohrschutz said passenger trains would continue to run through San Bernardino, Riverside, Fullerton and Los Angeles, and the freight route would reopen today."
