RIP to all the victims and my condolences go out to their families. My mom takes the train weekly so this is scary stuff to think about.

As a railroad employee, I'm actually surprised this doesn't happen more often.

Freight trains derail all the time.

Most are minor but I guess if it where people instead of coal and Fords it might not seem so minor.

Damn, looks worse then op sounded.

6 dead, 146 hospitalised.

Some passengers still unaccounted for.

Wonder whose track they were on NS or CSX.

9/10 they're gonna find away to blame the crew :smh:
