Norfolk Southern originally told The Virginian-Pilot the accident happened in the Portlock area of Chesapeake. The company finally acknowledged it was "within the boundaries" of the swamp more than 24 hours after the derailment.

In explaining the discrepancy in location, a Norfolk Southern spokesman wrote in an email that "'near Portlock' accurately conveyed the closest geographic reference point on the railroad system."

That's too damn bad. A big mess to be sure, and one hell of clean up going forward. Repair tracks, realign the ROW, roll in equipment and vacuum rigs ta suck all that pulverized coal outa there. Ya gotta hope the swamp will recover. But it won't happen in a couple months after all. It could take years ta know how the affected the area recovers.

Coal bad, very bad for swamp, why is it even running through swamp? But ok to burn in the power plant down the street. It's clean, clean coal if you will.

It's solid matter so it could serve to firm up the swampy soil.....critters that live in swamps don't like dry ground.
