Wow. That's an impressive wreck. Prayers for the families of the two crewmembers that were killed.

I'm guessing this is the cab the deceased were in.  :(

Up seems to do this once to ofetn.  Didn't they have a head on not that long ago.  Prayers and thoughs to the families of those involved.  And it also looks like UP owns CSX a locomotive.

I'm reminded of this "Bad Engineering" segment, which includes a spiel on the Metrolink collision several years ago.  (Starts at 1:19:22)

... Didn't they have a head on not that long ago. ...

This may or may not be what you're recalling but this thread last year discusses a UP collision on the same ex-SSW mainline last year, just a little further northeast.
