What caused the train car derailment on Monday – we get up close and show you

Local News

From the only angle we had on Monday you could not discern why the cars derailed.  However with this new vantage point it seems very clear.  M&NA RR has not returned our call.

(64801) — #JLNews received a call from a tipster who said, “I own that land right along the tracks, you feel free to check it out!” We accepted the invite to see up close what might have happened.

See clearly that whole section of track is actually a bridge that collapsed for some reason. And crews are working to rebuild it. #JLNbehindthescenes

That wasn’t visible from our vantage point.  See the map and still images in this exclusive material on FourStatesHomePage
