    WHHHHHHAAAAAAAAATTTT!!

    Three wrecks in a row and 2 on one day! What's wrong with them? Any newspapers have it on their websites yet?

    Speaking of the wrecks, they mentioned the one in Louisville very briefly on ABC's World News Tonight this evening. It wasn't very much, but at least it made the news. I think CSX needs to be penalized or something. Wreck once, warning. Wreck twice, a ticket. Wreck the third time and YOU ARE IN TROUBLE! Smile,Wink, & Grin [swg]Smile,Wink, & Grin [swg] Seriously, though, have any "chain-reactions" of wrecks on just one railroad happened like this before?

    Long live the BNSF .... AND its paint scheme. SchemerBob
  • No not yet. Go to watch the 11:00 news so i can give you guys an update.
  • UPDATE!!! It was a westbound intermoble train out of Syracuse. Cars were crashed after the containers fell off a bridge. People are with out power. Stay tune for more updates as they come in.
  • Second Update. All trains heading east or westbound will be using EC1 form speed down to 30 MPH. Huge cleanup and the hasmat crews are on the sceen.
  • What is it they say about bad things coming in threes.
  • This will be a public relations nightmare for CSX, but also for all railroads.  Even if all three are shown to be "unavoidable" (and we already know that the first one was definitely avoidable), those with legislative power will feel the need to "fix the problem".

    One railroad comes to mind. It was green had so many problems that NYC took it over. It showed all railroads HOW NOT to run a railroad and the name is PC or PENNCENTRAL!!!

  • It is an unclear if their is fourth derailment in the area that i am hearing on my scanner. Stay tune for more UPDATES as they come in.

  • Perhaps they will start to maintain the trackage. Dunce [D)] Naaah! The old NYC main is closing in on being as bad as it was back in (UGH!)Disapprove [V] 1975, dare I say. Yard trackage is getting worse every week. Trains are rocking while in Frontier yard, which is a poor sign of things to come if they don't do some thing soon. We had a bad one (BUT no one was hurt) when CSX dumped Q626 at CP433 while trying to leave from the north side a few weeks back, another piece of luck was that the worst car was carrying canned veggies.Whistling [:-^] That's better than, say, PVC or Chlorine, both of which run through here every day in nearly every train that is not an intermodal.
  • Their is not a fourth derailment in the area. Thank GOD for that. CSX is getting worse evry day. Just like PENNCENRAL railroad!!!!!
  • Here is another website www.wroctv.com. It shows and talks about the the train derailments and yes rail fans.
