first reaction: take pictures, post on chive
Well, this accident took place in 2002, so I wouldn't call the "post on chive" part a first reaction…
first reaction: take pictures . . . then create TheChive . . . then post on TheChive
Didn't think they had wooden bridges anymore….because of stuff like that
only in the US…we don't have what i would call "foresight"
who's got the marshmallows?!?!
He burned his bridge….he'll never get another job.
I see what you did there.
those pictures are all better than Unstoppable.
Why would you stop the train on a bridge? And why, when it starts burning, would you not get it moving OFF the bridge?
According to snopes, railroad regulations prohibit moving a train with a defective part. When the crew realized the bridge was on fire, they contacted the higher-ups and asked for permission to move the train off the bridge. The higher-ups told them they couldn't move the train because of the defective part. So they unhooked all the cars that weren't on the bridge and let the others fall in the creek.
Insurance claim? someone got paid
fried brakes were prolly siezed up and the train could not move.
Until "Hey, Soul Sister" was released this was the biggest Train disaster of the decade.
bwhaha! Oh snap!
that whole thing was just a train wreck
talk about epic fail
the train went down down down in a burnin blaze of fire…..
"Hey Jeb, help me & Billy put that fire out"
"I don't think so Jim-Bob, my brother's got a line of the contract to build a new bridge"
PICTURES NEED TO BE BIGGER LIKE HD PLEASE
This is a repost
disgruntled conductor decided to gtfo and move on, even if that meant burning bridges!
Where is the story that goes with this? Did anyone survive? Where did this happen?
your aware this is a freight train? the only thing that didn't survive were the cars that fell in the river
Going back to the future, your doing it wrong….
