Derailment in Paris, ILL
Posted by inch53 on Tuesday, March 04, 2008 7:49 AM

Come on TV [what passes for local news here] that 8 cars of a CSX train hauling pipe derailed at the old NYC diamond of the Cairo line and Terre Haute - Mattoon line. All the cars were still upright and no hazardous materials were involved. More updates as I get'em

And before one of you starts the CSX bashing, track crews have been upgrading most of this trackage. They hadn't started on the diamond yet the last I was by there and it wasn't in to bad a shape then. With the weather through here, rain, snow, ice, freezing n thawing latley, I'm guessing it's most weather related.
