An update because some of the details were fuzzy, and ***'s brain became unhinged as a result.

The updated report:http://www.kfvs12.com/2019/02/07/coal-train-derails-sparta-il/

Sparta? Now where on Gawd's (If he/she/it exists) Green Earth is Sparta? Oh yeah right Illinois.

Although it could've been one of the hundreds of US towns/cities by that name.

Did you know that Sparta, NJ is a very popular tourist destination? Well now ya do! You're welcome!

Not a word about the crew.

 Top Notch reporting. Hope they are OK.  Just one more thing....

Ditch Lites were off. Maybe these units were unmanned DPU?

You know if they had been in the lead with a U P crew, the

Ditchlites would have been on.

 Good point, Clavalin.  I never think in terms of DPU power, since it was, ahem, after my time*

 Yes, Briz has taught us that UP HAWGS are all masters of the art of ditch lights.

*Do the slave units with the biscuit box we ran mid-train on a few grain trains count?

 Not if our old 'friend' HHB had been in command of the locomotive in the lead. His claim to fame, as it were, was running lead units with ditch lights on. Not just high nope! HHB made sure to always use the 'super-duper' burn-the-retina-of-opposing-engineers-eyes-out setting!

Nobody on 2LARRCO misses HHB, when running on UP's rails,  trackage rights.

Uncle Pete layoffs. Mostly in Omaha at HQs. Other furloughs coming. Hourly grunts as well.

HHB don't work for Pete no more, so he could give a rat's ass, maybe two!
