Again Gus (Melonis) dropped the ball on Centralia yard. He alone is responsible for looking out for anything suspicious, or unusual on 2LARRCO's system. A big fat zero for you Gus, andUncle Warren is NOT pleased! He holds you solely to blame for the loss mister!

You will be called into theBIG office in FT. Worth. Soon.

Don't know if this' derailment' had anything to do with that 2LARRCO incident, but same yard, same time (approx.), same day. And they (us) say schitt happens in threes. So... http://www.chronline.com/news/union-pacific-train-derails-in-downtown-centralia/article_f1a9be64-20dc-11e8-95c9-3319c7b510cb.html

Although these cars are obviously not empty coal cars. Nope! But they sure ripped up some rails, ties, and busted shit in their wake! Lotsa work for MOW and contractors

Listening to BNSF radio waves today late afternoon and the Everett-Long View Jct
EVELVJ was leaving Delta Yard and going up the SeaLine and the engineer called
Delta Yardmaster said the train went into emergency...think we broke apart. The
Yardmaster answered "what". So much radio chatter that I dint hear if the train
did come apart but the train jammed up the "flow of traffic". Think it backed all the
way back into Delta Yard. Thought I heard somebody say it was the locomotive that
"did it". So an hour+ later the EVELVJ calls again for a line-up the Sealine at PA Jct
and on the move out of Delta again but the "horn" on the lead unit fails after the
first crossing which would be RR Ave and the train is stopped again and blocking
a crossing for "X-amount of time". The EVELVJ is requesting help to get the horn
working again and a TM is on his way. Then after the Dispr takes down all the signals
and before the TM can arrive the EVELVJ says they did something to get the horn
to work again and want to proceed again. 3rd time/attempt a charm as the train
made it out of town with delays to many other trains. MIR shadow period shit I'm
thinking at its earliest.

Then this comes across the "derailment headlines" about the UP got a sizeable derailment
in Portland OR.

MIR Railroad news as the UP Omaha Dispatching Center power outage has things
fucked-up. UP also has problems with a bridge and a trestle in Marysville CA due
to the heavy rains recently.

MIR Railroad news....MIR+ Sun square Mars Sunday "had something to do" with a
couple derailments. BNSF puts 17 cars on the ground on the Brookfield Sub near
KC. Then a 2-car derailment on the busy NS Alabama East End Sunday has trains
backed up everywhere.

Scanning the web for railroad disasters during MIR and a couple stories stateside.
CSX put a "spine-car" on the ground in JAX. Then a "POOP Train" is delayed getting
to where its sposed to go. Who wants a POOP Train or a garbage trene sitting in one place
for more than a minute. Those MIR delays.

Probly already discussed in chat...the UP rear end crash in Monahans West Texas.
Big pile of boxcars and engines on their side. The major celestial aspect of Sun conjunct Uranus
was exact.

So a NS stack train derailed in Suffolk VA making a big mess right in peoples
back yards. This derailment occurred during Mercury square Pluto/Venus square Neptune/
Sun oppose Jupiter. There could be more tomorrow/next day some place.

That's the state taxpayer funded/state supported G&W scab outfit that stole the port work from NS crews at the end of the old Norfolk, Franklin, and Danville (NF&D/N&W). They use NS and CSX power to build the trains and bring them out close to the mainlines.

In the late 80's, LAMCO decided they would never send a T&E employee into the City of Portsmouth, VA due to FELA lawsuits from all over the system being filed against them in Portsmouth courts. They have been true to their word. They severed all trackage that was in the city. The Virginian mainline is in Chesapeake, VA and one side is the city line. You could walk off the right of way and be in Portsmouth, but your LAMCO train was in Chesapeake.

It has cost them many tens of millions in lost container business to CSX. They set up the scab line to serve a BASF chemical plant. They gave them a 20-year option to buy the land. Chemical plant went bust, railroad was on the rocks, but ran through neighborhoods (see picture) to access the only huge tract of land available on the river.

Maersk invested almost a billion in a container port and almost went bust in the downturn. The day before the option to buy the land RailTex (or whichever scab outfit it was at the time around 2008) bought it for $8 million from LAMCO. VA Republicunts signed sweetheart forever lease deal with Maersk for the state port authority to lease and run, funded the scab line with over $50 million in rebuilding and relocating money. That allowed CSX into the ports without using Norfolk and Portsmouth Beltline involvement. Less than a month later, CSX had taken all of the Maersk traffic SINGLE STACKED from LAMCO.

PS: Fuck 'em all.

Thank you Mr Snippy for that thorough re-cap of the trackage where the derailment occurred.
Did you write that without looking anything up...probly. You know your railroads.

So on May 13th A CSX Coal train derailed in Newport News yard and screwed things up.
Celestial weather for this one would be Mercury square Mars conjunct Uranus. Applaud
all the trains that dint derail over the weekend. I feel more comfortable telling what astro-
aspects were in effect "after". My accuracy rate is higher.

Sometimes it isn't a derailment that draws attention but a work train in San Luis Obispo CA
loaded with old rr ties "were on fire". Pretty sure this is malfeezon/arsen and the celestial
aspect for the day Mars square Uranus where you can end up with a "2-fold action" of an idiot
setting the fire and the results/damage of the fire. This event "fits right in" with a celestial aspect
of Mars/Uranus.

Some other not to pleasant topics of a Mars square Uranus aspect and railroading
is the "losing a limb/foot/etc" incidents/accidents. There were several to make the
news. Ted Curphy posts on TO on a couple that happened in his area. Then there
is a 16yr old in Portland OR crawling under a slow moving train lost a foot. Then an
article about amputees suing CN for creating an unsafe environment. Other effects
of Mars square Uranus is "washouts". No bigger surprise if you are a train than a
"washout" of the tracks. CSX Brunswick Line has one.
