Accident reports

I brought this question up to someone who researched the ICC accident files.  The answer I got is that a lot of the files were thrown out with the closure of the ICC, and what remains is what is available on-line.  One of my theories was that accidents with no fatalities were not in the files, but that proved not to be true.  There are minor accidents as well as horrendous accidents in the files. It is odd that some years are extensive and some years show few accidents, or that some railroads had no accidents.  That makes no sense.

  I have seen the accident reports on the ICC site for the N&W. I have seen photos of accidents that are not on the ICC listings. My 2 questions are, why were some listed and some not? Is there a company listing of all the accidents that were on the N&W?
