Trainwreck Part 2

June 9, 2009

Here is a link to a news report on CBC.ca that includes a photo of the crash site taken from the air:

Lynda said she heard them starting to slowly shuttle cars past our place at about 2 a.m. I saw just one this afternoon after getting up for the day and it was crawling up the track. Perhaps another incident like this will bring a reduced speed limit for trains running through urban areas – I hope so. Anything that will further protect people, property and infrastructure. As you can see this could easily have taken out the overhead bridge.

Ah well, the peace and quiet has been nice for those who appreciate it. It’ll be back to situation ‘normal’ very soon, I’m sure.
