    • Deferred maintenance?

    • Do your  CP  train(s) on your trackage  tend to derail daily or at least a couple times within 48 hrs ?

       

      Well, as we say there is a prototype for everything;

      "...The company said the incident in Bawlf was “unrelated” to one in Wilkie..."

      In what way  ?    Obviously diff. day,  diff. location, not same derailed cars (the first batch are likely scrap) !    :)~

    • Just shows to go ya, there's a prototype for everything.

    • Whoa, the bridge folds to clear avalanche path; there's one I didn't see coming, and yet it is so logical and sensible.

      Second thought, "Look ma, just like a garden railway!"

      Remarks & Notes  Snow clearance on the Furka pass line of the Dampfbahn Furka Bergstrecke (DFB). The Steffenbach bridge, which is folded down during the winter to give the avalanches a free path, is ready for assembling in a few days.

    • The loco shown at its home, along with some others.

      It seems to have worked at a glass and chemical factory (Zuid-Chemie) at the southern Netherland town of Sas van Gent.

    • Fortunately no one was hurt, but 2 lanes of HWY 95 have been shut down for the clean up.  My son-in-law is an engineer for BNSF and that section of the system goes to White Fish, Montana from Spokane, Washington.  That was a 100 car plus loaded grain train coming from the Midwest and heading to Pasco, Washington.  I met a young man last night at an anniversary party for some friends that's works for BNSF as a safety engineer who knows my son-in-law.  He said the cause of the accident was a broken wheel on one of the lead grain cars.  He also said that one lane of the track has been repaired and trains are moving along that stretch again, but it will take a little time to finish clearing all the damaged cars and repair both tracks like they were.

       

      Just a little update.

    • John said :pole

    • Amazing that with all that wreckage the signal and that other pole on the right are still standing.  Looks like trains will be delayed in that area for at least an hour or two.

    • Elk and deer are coming from miles around to eat the corn and posing a traffic hazard. (True news story)

    • Cats are coming from miles around to turn that into a giant litter box.
