Illinois train derailment
« on: October 07, 2011, 07:13:09 PM »
At approximately 2:30 AM today a 126 car freight train passed through the town of Tiskilwa, Illinois with a population of 850+. Shortly thereafter the train suffered a massive de-railment of 26 cars, mostly carrying de-natured alcohal. 7 cars were then involved in fire and explosions resulting in the mandantory evacuation of the town. This town is approximately 115 miles SW of Chicago. FF's are allowing the fire to burn itself out, people are beling allowed to return. Citizens are complaining that after recent rail work that train speeds have increased dramatically.
