This happened several days ago on the NS near Jenkinsville, SC. I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned on here.

Depending on what link you read, anywhere from 97 to 120 BMWs were damaged.

Oh to be a trackhoe operator at RJ Corman. Must have been very satisfying picking up brand new $80k beamers by the roof and piling them up like matchbox cars.
