Buffalo and Pittsburgh derailment at East Aurora NY. I actually stumbled onto the YouTube drone video of this derailment and

was having a hard time trying to figure out why it derailed. The 3-units on the ground was covering up the evidence as this

train was lined into a stub track just south of the bridge. Would think maybe that switchstand might be hard to see and its

always lined for the main track...except this "VIR" day when its already be determined that a B&P employee left the switch

lined for the stub track. Track speed is 25mph through East Aurora NY and don't know if it was going faster.  What a mess.
