It was MRL, seen a bunch of it on the Northwestern Railfans page on Facebook.

And here we see the baby Boeings drinking from the river. They are so young that they haven't even grown wings yet.

From the article;

"Linda Frost, Montana Rail Link, told CBS-affiliate KPAX 19 cars derailed about 18 miles east of Superior around 4 p.m Thursday, July 3. Seven of the cars were carrying aircraft components, three cars soybeans, three cars with denatured alcohol and the other seven were empty"

I just don't get the new math  :facepalm:

Maybe one of them was MILW's #1 or #2, the original plug door covered hopper?  Built for the MILW and BCOL, jointly, they had MILW reporting marks but both heralds.  Morning Sun's MILW Freight Car Color Guide Vol 2 has pictures, but I can't find any online.  With the right bulkheads it could have aircraft parts in one end and soybeans in the other...

Seriously, I try to keep up with Montana news, but have never had much faith in KPAX and it's affiliates.

"NBC Montana was told 19-cars derailed, 6 were empty and 13 had cargo."

They look like the cartoons one sees of "evolution", with the fish crawling out of the sea.  Looks like one changed its mind and is going back under.

Here are the pictures of MILW 1/2, also known as BCOL 2126/2127.  These were originally posted on The Railwire in topic 21112 by Dave Schneider.



And, no, I don't think they could be used as both a boxcar and a covered hopper at the same time.  It was all one or all the other, not half-and-half.

okay I am using speech to text to write this. On my way westbound going over Stevens Pass. Just passed a Norfolk and southern unit pulling enuf Boeing flatcars with the bulkheads eastbound. Looks like they're starting to send resources for cleanup. Did not get a picture went by too fast going the opposite direction.

So does that make it a train wreck or a plane crash?

According to the Weather Channel website the other day (always a good source for news  :facepalm: ) they thought it was a plane crash:
