The cars looked empty. It's an unbelievable sight with one of them taking up the whole bank right above the lip of tunnel. Marty or todd, will you post pics?

The coal train carries coal in one direction and returns empty. I also believe there is an amtrak passanger train.

Derailment Pics

Hey Guys, I just got back in town and have some catching up to do, but if I get a chance in the next couple of days I will try to post my pics of the derailment- some of them are really impressive.

Have Fun

The line carries coal (empty one way and full the other) as well as all other types of freight. Amtrak too. Gotta see the flicks.
