    Here is where it happened.

    It was a West Bound and was crossing the through the Gibbon Jct.
    Supposedly it took out all three mainlines, but not sure?
    It definitely shut down all three and trains on both routes have come to a standstill.

    Could you drive out instead?



    Seriously, glad it's an intermodal and not a hazmat or oil train.

    Amen to that!
    I think I'll just bide my time and wait, in a few months they'll have another and maybe it'll be closer...
    If I can figure out to link to a video someone posted on FB, they caught it in action, they were on Hwy 30 right next to it.
