  There was a derailment of several cars on Horseshoe Curve tonight July 5, 2019 after 9:00 PM. This is per Virtual Railfan and can be viewed on You Tube!
Looks to be a tank car, some covered hoppers and, center beam cars. Unknown cause.

I thought VR offered their Horseshoe Curve cam on Youtube permanently?  I cannot find it......

Anyway, here's a video VR made from their cam archives tho they didn't seem to actually capture the derailment when it happened.
