Information I heard is it was 20A. Hartzell Rd crossing was closed Saturday as there was a car sitting on the road. Hulcher used 4 side-boom cats to put the well cars back on the track. It looks like it was on the connection track between the Fostoria and Huntington Districts.

Looks like about 6 well cars were totaled, 2 containers destroyed. They were emptying the 2 containers in the parking lot of Erie Haven Concrete. looked to be several sets to be setting around the car shop at East Wayne and there was semi's driving off with some of the containers today.. looks like they got lucky !

WANE TV is reporting another derailment in the fort. Photos show an area near Piqua. Anyone have more details?

Another one on the ground. New reports the following New Haven street crossings are closed: Green, Broadway, State, and High. Unfortunately, work prevents me from gathering my own information. :cry: Hopefully, no one was hurt. Hulcher/RJ Corman will be working in -12 wind chills during clean-up.
