Speaking of autoracks (derailing)

I'm surprised that none of the Northeast US members have posted this yet (since it happened last Wednesday). Maybe because the were no causalities?  :trollface:

Gotta back Ian on this one.
The very next day PAR put one on the ground in Nashua NH.

and if that's not enough the day after the Nashua incident PAR had 14 cars on the ground in Westford Ma.

and as Spring comes I'm sure there will be others.  :facepalm:

The Gardner derailment was the P&W.  Westford was much less than 14 cars, although that was the initial report.
