Ladies and Gentlemen,
To see a couple of photos that I took of the
aftermath of Norfolk Southern's 27 car derailment
yesterday between Glenvar and Wabun on the old
Virginian Railway, go to:

For those who may have missed the news article
associated with this derailment, I've pasted it below.
Roanoke (VA) Times:
Norfolk Southern coal train dereals near Salem
ROANOKE, Va. - A Norfolk Southern coal train derailed
Thursday west of Salem, VA, sending more than
20 cars off the track, Roanoke County police said.
No injuries were reported, and there was no indication
of foul play.
The train, consisting of 147 coal cars and two
locomotives, was en route from Bluefield, W.Va., to
Roanoke. It went off the track around 1:30 p.m., said
Norfolk Southern spokesman Rob Chapman.
Mike Gustafson, who witnessed the derailment,
described the scene as "a big, crumpled mess," with
cars scattered along a 400-yead stretch of railroad
Thursday's was the third derailment for Norfolk
Southern since January.
A Norfolk Southern train carrying a chlorine tanker
hit another parked train last month, rupturing a
fist-sized hole that released a toxic vapor cloud
killing nine people and injuring 250 more.
Another derailment in Pittsburgh leaked toxic material
into the Allegheny River.
Best wishes, all!
