Interesting story from http://abcnews.go.com/Weird/wireStory/p ... d-41233609 about a covered hopper derailing into a drinking establishment named DeRailed. This apparently happened on 8/9/16.
Garry KPolice say a freight train car that derailed in northern Iowa rolled into and damaged a trackside tavern called DeRailed.
Police Chief Hugh Anderson says the accident occurred around 4 a.m. Tuesday as crews moved rail cars and changed connections in Charles City. Anderson says it appears that the track separated and the grain car tipped about 45 degrees into the back of the bar.
Anderson says a patrol officer called him to say a train car had derailed into Derailed, adding that "it's not every day you get to say that."
No one was injured. The bar owner estimates damage at $10,000.
Charles City is about 140 miles northeast of Des Moines.
