Pretty good info in that article. Had the train numbers, which you don't usually get.

That immediately caught my eye too Kim when I first got that update from channel 19 Fox in Cincinnati. It was all in a direct quote from the press release by Norfolk Southern.  That was one of the more informative press releases on an accident I have seen in a while.
Have a good and safe day!

The 2 engines along with the tank cars are in the old scrap yard spur track just past Butler St by the Taco Bell.  I havenít seen em yet, but was told the locomotive drawbar is shoved all the way through the traction motor.  Impact was around 28mph

To add to this another remote accident happened in Elkhart last week.  Spilled a lot of fuel on the ground.

I was told CSX had a rear ender here on the CE&D north of Princeton a couple weeks ago.  Q029 coupled up to the rear end of Q217 at 9 mph.  My guess was this happened near Patoka.
Anyone hear about this?
