Remarks: After watching an empty coal come through the Amtrak station, I noticed there were two EB pigs sitting at Monument occupying both tracks... I waited to see which would go first. After neither went... I headed over to the yard to see what the hold up was. Apparently, the hold up was a box car that had found itself on its side on the new main line... No still shot camera with me, but had my video camera, so here's a little footage.
One of those 'right place at the right time' moments, nice catch. But how do 'expected' derailments work versus unexpected? 'Sorry Joe, can't go bowling tonight - I'm picking a switch with a cut of covered hoppers at 7, I've got a hard coupling at 8, and then I go right into a spread gauge at 8:30 - I'm swamped.' Something like that maybe?
