I had to go to Hoagland this afternoon, so I drove by. The cars are laying on their side on a farmers lane about 100 yards or more from the derailment location. I assume they will be cut up where they sit. The spilled contents are still along the track. When I went back by there about a hour and a half later, there was a high rail truck that looked to be picking up or sitting down some pieces of rail. It was too dark and rainy for pictures.
The sweetest sounds in the world: A pair 567's at idle, and a non turbo 645 in run 8!
