    I didn't read anything about any cars caught up in it, but that would be one heck of a site to see on the freeway!

    I'm used to seeing them derailed in Nebraska but it was never that bad and usually on the side of the road.

    Couldn't figure out why that picture looked fake. The shadows didn't look right. Then I realized it was a huge mound of coal. What a mess!

    Actually...
    There was a derailment about 1.5 years ago in this area. It was the same rail line, and it was caused by poor track maintenance. I think that, when the investigation finishes, they are going to find out that the bridge collapsed from the weight of the full coal cars (something that doesn't happen often around here). If you look at the pictures, you can see that the derailment started on the bridge.
    It was a CN line, so I figure that we can just BLAME CANADA!
