On January 30, 2015, WE 304 received heavy damage to the low short hood and front
pilot after it was involved in a collision and derailment between Pittsburgh Jct.
and Jewett, Ohio.  The wreck damage was repaired at Brewster and the 304 received
a replacement front to the short hood, new pilot, coupler/draft gear, steps, plow, etc.

This photo shows the 304, after it was released from the shop following repairs in April:
