Silver Meteor #98 derails while backing into Savannah station
Posted by Virginia Creeper on Thursday, January 04, 2018 10:25 AM

The last three cars, a baggage car and two sleeper cars, derailed while Amtrak Silver Meteor #98 backed into Savannah station about 10 p.m. Wednesday, January 3. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that a frozen switch opened.

No injuries were reported. The rest of the train continued north.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that a frozen switch opened.

Not something one usually has to worry about in Georgia eh.

The weather has been unusually cold all across North America for the past few weeks, but things are slowly getting back to normal now.
