Several auto dash-cam views of this 52-car CN grain train crossing the highway at speed then shit happens as 30+ cars go everyplace.

TO is on top of the story if you need updates.

Excellent dash-vam viv, then the 'news' follow up. Yep. the folks up there in Sasky (cops/response/CN/locals) were right on top of this one! Congrats gents. And a BIG thanks ta all. An update:https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatoon/saskatoon-derail-freight-fire-folo-1.4989210

Thankya to our pal Krink tu!

One question however; How'd that fire start when the power (2 units) were pulling 52 loaded grain cars trailing? Unless another unit was DPed as 'mid-train' helper. No explanation in the news clip or vid from dash

There's another video showing the mid-train power derailing.

Here's one: https://globalnews.ca/video/4876613/cn-train-derails-north-of-saskatoon-2

And, Canuckistanian Rebekah is looking pretty good, tu.

A late post on TO said the car count corrected to 155 loaded cars of grain and that would make sense of
one or two mid-train DPU's. The first DPU is the one that spilt fuel and caught fire and it must be 35-40 cars
behind the headend power.
