1915 with bulb horn, running board tool box and Hartford friction shocks, like new and all dolled up for a short dance with the train!

One can certainly wonder about these looks into the past. I have read many tales from so long ago, of new drivers fully expecting the new car to warn them of danger just like ol' Dobbin did. Reports of out-control drivers running through the neighbor's fence hollering "WHOA" all the way. Many people simply did not expect a car going 20 mph to get there so much faster than the old horse did at 10 mph. Dangers came up fast, and many people were not ready for the responsibility.

Those top boots really do work!

That is a good example of a '15 top boot (cover). It is the last year Ford used that style of boot. In 1916 they went to the slip on style, with no flap or common sense fasteners.

Rules for traffic hierarchy:
Trains aren't afraid of trucks
Trucks aren't afraid of cars
Cars aren't afraid of motorbikes, bicycles or pedestrians!
Picking a target above your weight class is never a good idea

As bad as the Ford is, it doesn't look bad enough to have been hit by a train.

When I first saw the post of getting hit by a train I wondered how fast the train was going. To me it looks like it was pushed out of the right away instead of being hit by a moving train.

Whatever hit it wasn't moving very fast and it was probably walking speed at best. Maybe it was just clipped?

Maybe it was nudged by an inter-urban trolley?
It looks like it was hit on the left side and the little "cow catcher" those trains had lifted it up enough that the spokes weren't snapped on that side from being pushed sideways, like the right side ones were.
That tool box must hold some good quality tools as it looks like it kept the driver's side "door" from taking more damage from the collision!

Dale W, Those were my thoughts also when I first looked it over.

I'll bet it was fixed. It's new and looks worse than it is.
