CSX Baltimore Derailment

Been getting it's fair share of derailments recently.

BALTIMORE CITY MD | RAIL INCIDENT | HOLLINS FERRY RD @ PACA ST | 153 CAR CSX FREIGHT TRAIN W 22 CARS DERAILED, NO HAZMAT, NO INJURIES REPORTED OPS FG1 |

Hollins Ferry Rd is blocked.

Further info:  Q438-27 just derailed seven cars starting with car 14 thru the crossovers at Carroll. Cars are on their side. No haz-mats. Q249 was the last train thru. Q703 to hold at CP.

Bad spot for a derailment because the two escape routes (South Baltimore Industrial to Curtis Bay and the Mt Clare branch) are blocked.

CSX had a car came off the rails on the east side on Wednesday too. I was at Harbor Hospital listening to Baltimore City Fire dispatch the box alarm to Clinton St at Keith Ave near I-95. Baltimore City wasn't on the scene for long though. I think CSX just had to rerail a car or two.

Ethanol train string-lined in Tampa on Thursday too.  11 cars on the ground, 4500 gallons spilled
