The Chattanooga Police and Chattanooga Fire Department are on the scene of a train and truck collision at a railroad crossing.

It happened around 9:30 Thursday morning in the 400 block of Wauhatchie Pike at the Wauhatchie Yards in Lookout Valley.

The truck driver had to be extricated from the cab of the truck but he is expected to be okay. The cab was found about 50 yards away in a ditch. 

The train conductor and engineer also suffered minor injuries.

The derailment of the Norfolk Southern train involved three locomotives and 10 rail cars. Norfolk Southern is bringing in extra workers and heavy equipment to remove the derailed cars, and begin work on repairing the railroad tracks, which were badly damaged.

Several thousand gallons of diesel fuel spilled onto the ground from ruptured fuel tanks on the locomotives, according to CFD spokesman Bruce Garner.

"We're relieved that there weren't more serious injuries than what we have with the two Norfolk Southern individuals and the one truck driver with Clean Harbors," said Garner.

The truck, called a large "roll-off" container truck, belongs to Clean Harbors Environmental, a company that assists in cleaning up spills and derailments like this one.

 Snippy would scrap a LAMCO 83-8400 for a burned out or broken headlight.

them were the bastages with both screens on a angle that takes up most of the desktop portion of the desk. No room to lay your orders out, had to keep them folded up and sticking them in yer pocket, had to check more often so ya didn't forget anything. Those POS also had such dim screens you couldn't even see them on a bright day. They were brute enuff at nite,  but during the day you were almost flyin blind.

Like Slugger said GoneRail pieces of shit.

Those engines suckform every aspect. Old, dirty, desktop, bouncy, switches are in odd Conrail locations.

It's weird how the old Conrail SD60s with standard cabs are like Cadillacs,. But everything else is pure shit. The SD40s are worst.

That was my next gripe. Who's the braniac that designed that setup? I bet that fucker got paid good money for it too. What a waste. Our railroad still has the classlights on them. The foamers love them and gleefully turn them on.

 It was Snippys brother from another mother who dreamed up desktop control stands.

Why it's almost as big as when they moved the outhouse inside the house Steve guffawed.

Snippy laughed out loud.

Clalvlin... Bingo.

Snippy loves how the mirrors are uniquely positioned to be completely obscured by the window frame if you shut the side window.
