UPDATE:

The site is in the area of Route 230 and Whistle Stop Lane near Shenandoah Junction. Multiple crossings are temporarily blocked, according to a release from the Shepherdstown Fire Department. It is believed to be a freight train carrying hazardous materials.

The derailment is between the Harpers Ferry and Duffields MARC train stations. As a result, MARC Brunswick commuter lines from Washington, DC will not return to West Virginia this evening.
CSX has notified MARC Train that there has been a freight train derailment between Harpers Ferry and Martinsburg. All evening Brunswick Line trains will terminate at Brunswick this evening. We are working to establish alternate bus service at this time and will send another message with details when arrangements are finalized.

According to the FRN Network on Drain Oders the following is the real situation:

If anyone cares about the derailment, it doesn't sound serious; reportedly 4-7 empty hoppers from an 11,000ft. westbound.
Happened in Berkeleley County, WV., about 1:30 in the afternoon, several miles east of Martinsburg, between Blairton and Van Cleavesville, in the vicinity of the county fairgrounds.
A massive emergency response was mostly canceled.
Biggest problem is traffic congestion due to many crossings being blocked.

Proper train building in 2019: MTs on head end. Racks in the middle. 8000 feet/8700 tonnes of double stacks on the rear.

Improper train blocking is the new rule on CSX.....empty flats ahead of 20000 tons of what have you? Yes, do it or be charged with whatever we can think of.
