Unread post by Jochs »

A CN train derailed today in Matteson, IL, a suburb of Chicago. There was an evacuation order but it was lifted later when it was determined that chemicals leaking from the derailed train posed no threat to nearby residents.

I guess it’s really soft ground there and some rough track from what I’ve heard. That was train X39691 that derailed - Champaign to Toronto. Cars that were in the block to be set off in Flint were the ones that tipped over.
