CSX Derailment
« on: February 21, 2013, 10:24:19 AM »
Looks like CSX did it again, by putting ten cars, including two containing sulfuric acid, on the ground last night along the Philly Sub.  This is only two or three miles from our office, and a co-worker just bought a house within a few hundred yards of the tracks not too far from the scene of the accident.  Thankfully, the derailment turned out to be minor, although the early morning commute here in Cecil County was snarled by detours.
