Breaking News, CN derails potash near Hope BC
Permalink  
 


This derailment falls under the celestial aspect Venus square Uranus. This is a BIG MESS to cleanup. 200 car potash train doing 50+mph through Hope BC

and I dont know what happened. I thought I read it was a CP train directionally running on CN tracks. They can run trains on the CP side during this

lengthy cleanup.

Stacked them right up. Impressive.

They will reroute on the CP side for a good while.

Looks like a short little shoo-fly will get that mainline moving again.

Not a derailment where you can just push the derailed cars to the side. Pretty much every car is going to see the crusher.
Potash is a fertilizer so be interesting to see what grows in the derailment area next spring.

Potash is an ingredient in fertilizer; it dont make schitt grow. You can ask me how I know if you would like tu. As an aside, Snippy worked on a potash unit train handling railroad and has a garden.

Unless mebbe they could get a boxcar size Grander water stabilizer thang and drop it in there.
