Train Wreck???

Postby Mark D » Sat Nov 09, 2019 10:39 am

Last night when I came into the house my wife informed me that on the national news there was a big train wreck. I figured it would be noted on at least one of the TV channels from the Twin Cities, but nothing was mentioned.
This morning I checked on the web and found nothing.
Was this 'train wreck' just someone's American Flyer running off the table? or something similar?

WOW! Talk about train wrecks!! Amtrak is out of business between PA and NY until the mess is cleared. The mess looks like it's going to take a long time. Maybe now the track might be cleared though because it's been long enough that they could have cleared the track and inspected it.
I can think of one engine crew who won't be running trains any time soon

Thanks for identifying that wreck. I knew I had seen it in print somewhere but couldn't remember where. Any news on the clean up?

I have not found anything about the cleanup, so I assume that is all said and done.
