BNSF firery derailment near AZ/NM border
Permalink  
 


BNSF manifest train BELPHX derailed near Lupton on AZ/NM border. 104 cars 12,000+ tons with rear DPU. Some pictures I've seen indicate 

this derailment happened at a crossover. Big fireball going on 2 days now. Nearby I-40 shut down. Big mess for BNSF and the thousands of

backed up trucks stopped on I-40.

They called in a helicopter and dive-bomb with flame retardant to put the fires out. BNSF sposed to have both mains
ready for trains late this Sunday. I'm sure the backlog of trains is huge. Traffic moving again on I-40.

I am heading west on i40 in a week or so, but I will work my way down to i10 at some point so I should miss whatever is left of that mess.

I-40 gives you BNSF, I-10 gives you UP. Made that trip a few times going to my Arizona relatives.

Several railcams on the BNSF transcon like Gallop and others that parallel I-40 have a severe issue with "truck noise".
It spoils having the volume up above very low. Unbelievable amount of trucks use I-40.

I will go as far as Las Cruces, but head North from there.
