Default NS 60A derailment pics

Around 0500 on Saturday 11/12/05, Eastbound NS 60A (empty steel train) derailed 24 cars at Vanarsdale Ky, on the Louisville District. No injuries, but track damage was extensive. A friend of mine called around 0800 to tell me a train had derailed in my backyard (and it almost was..maybe a half mile east of our house) GW and myself ventured out a little after 0900 and found the site, contacted the fellow who owns the farm next to the tracks and spent part of the day shooting the activities.

Here is a link to some shots of the accident. Please note that all of these images where taken from private property with the permission of the landowner, and not from Railroad property. Click the link below , then choose the album on the right..
