CSX Derailment in GA

This time, CSX derailed a train in Atlanta, Georgia around 3am today. Sources say as many 15 of 190 cars derailed, and knocked a house off of its foundation. Thankfully homeowner escaped without major injury. Looks like another major derailment for CSX this year, and a lot of track damage.

Do you suppose the owner of the house will rebuild or relocate? CSX does have deep pockets.

Either or could happen. It depends on what the homeowner feels is right for their situation. I still would expect CSX to have the possibility of contending with a lawsuit from them however, despite having deep pockets.
