Shelby County train derailment (cbs4indy.com)

 

Railroad St - Google Maps

SHELBY COUNTY, Ind. Emergency responders in Shelby County were dispatched to a train derailment Thursday morning.

The train derailment happened around 8:10 a.m. on Railroad Street between State Road 9 and State Road 52 in Fountaintown.

The train was carrying around 80 cars total. An official from CSX Transportation said 14 of those cars were derailed. Six were empty, and eight were carrying mixed freight.

At approximately 8:11 a.m. today, a CSX train headed to Avon yard in Indianapolis derailed fourteen railcars near North Division Road in Fountaintown, IN. Preliminary reports indicate that of the derailed cars, six are empty and eight are loaded with mixed freight. During the course of the derailment, the railcars impacted several power lines causing power disruption near the surrounding area. CSX is working closely with the local fire department, first responders, and Duke Energy to secure the site and restore power as quickly and safely as possible. There were no injuries to the train crew. The safety of the community and everyone on site is our top priority as we develop a recovery plan. The cause of the derailment remains under investigation.

Nothing like stacking them up. That's the line running between Hamilton, OH, and Indy, Hoosierland.  An aerial view:

Have to say it's probly Sun oppose Jupiter action goin on over there. Bad news.

Then again, having lived the PSR dream (very bad),  as the person called nsrlink

said in the recent NS intermodal  wreck drainodours thread it's also fair to ask ...

..."Wondering if it has to do with furloughing a trainload of mechanical & maintenance guys ?"
