Derailment on the snake?

Post by CIOR » Fri Jan 20, 2006 12:03 pm

This morning around 3am, I heard the New Castle District Dispatcher tell a couple of trains here in Muncie that they wouldn't be going to much farther north due to the 313 derailing on the snake.

I didn't see anything posted about it though.

Yeah, there was quite a bit of " orange" over at the west end. Saw the crane, what looked like a rail rack, and a lot of blinking lights.

Check out the wonderful resource our forum host has put together describing FW rail operations and planr. It is located here http://www.fwarailfan.net/fortwayne_loc.htm

And you will see that the "snake" is a connecter joining the seperate NS districts in Ft Wayne, , near east wayne yard.
