Today's 'other' railroad news

Call BoiseBoatBoy if yer really concerned about your DD-Destroyer! I'm sure he's still employed by the post office in Boise, Idaho.

In other RRNooz somebody sent me a link for the White Pass & Yukon Railroad. The line was pushed through the pass 121 years ago when the  Alaska Gold Rush was on. The railroad is considered one of North America's engineering marvels. A work of ingenuity, and technical expertise for the times. It attracts millions of visitors every year. Railfans come from all over the world to ride WP&YRR. I'm gonna hafta go soon tu!

Pretty sure they'd hire the lot of us, with our expertise, and proven experience! Hell, I'd hire me if I was in charge...

BNSF's turn to derail cars in the AZ/CA desert due to weather. All kinds of weather
with strong gusts and flash flooding. The train crew says it was a "micro-burst" they
went through and blew the "stacks off the tracks" like a stringline. . BNSF Transcon so
they will be fixing this mess up pretty fast. Celestial Weather more of the Sun oppose Pluto.

Gusty winds blew several double-stacks off the tracks at Bainville Montana on the
Montana/North Dakota line and the BNSF North Transcon line. Add to cart another
"weather caused derailment".

What scares the shit right outa me is them hoo-hoos! Fuckers sneak up on ya when yer really wasted, or stoned on some strong-ass weed! Bam you ain't thinkin' about nothin' except maybe catchin' a few winks, or them long, tanned legs and that short skirted honey that strolled into your limited field of vision...

Then one of them hoo-hoos scares ya outa your reveree! Your heart drops, your stomach threatens ta come up yer throat! Fuck! Watch out motherfucker... It's hoo-hoo time. There goes yer mellow state of being. Shit on by your own damn paranoia. Again!

But that ain't what I had in mind, nope. It's this schitt just happened in North Jesey. On the Susie Q. Check it out.

A couple derailments of interest Aug 2th during MERCx/MARSx. BNSF grain train derails on
east end of the famous long bridge at Cut Bank Montana on the BNSF Northern Transcon.
In St Louis a UP train "stringlines" 6 covered hoppers off a bridge to streets below.
Other than that a pretty good day.

"Add to Cart" derailments during the MIR/MARSrx period. BNSF derails 5-cars in downtown
Great Falls MT but the "more MIR" derailment was a UP train crossing the Hoffman Bridge
in St Paul and the derailment ruptured the locomotive fuel tanks and it all went into the river.
