Nasty crash in Arkansas early this morning:

Sounds like single track main through the area...

Bromley emeritus RR spokespimp extends the sympathies of the entire corporation to the families of those who perished.

There's still a couple of years to get in the courthouse and file lawsuits against the same families.

Some Armour Yellow paint and probably more speed from the double track guy you get an idea of the single track guy from seven years ago.

That's frightening, even watching it from the relative safety of my retirement years. Take care, everyone.

Right at the switch. Geesh.

On a brighter note, diamond days?

A mess any way ya slice it... Losing a crew to something like this, which should never happen, is the saddest part of it! All the track, locos, cars, cargo... Can be replaced of course. Lives lost, you guys know all too well!

This is likely the very latest news right now, from the locale:

The main vid appears as though it was filmed above the point, and there's something burning away... A car of some sort, and there's more'n one clip.
