Two csx brothers survived derailment in Pike Cty KY this morning after
and ethanol train derailed and rolled into a river. It was determined
there was a mudslide on the track. They were rescued as the train was
burning. Just think what could have happened here if there was just one
man on that train and there was no one there to help him. Maybe both
would have got hurt, Maybe not but it is better to have 2 men on these
trains to up the chance of someone being there to help each other.
They cant blame this one on the crew and the PTC and TO couldn't help
with this one bit. Thank god they are both okay. This accident needs
to be plastered all over every single internet outlet out there. Let
the public see and hear what we deal with everyday we are out on the
rails. Anything can happen.
