Derailment at Pacific Abrasives

On Nov 20 an Omnitrax freight train experienced a derailment just outside the Pacific Abrasives fence where the tracks cross Carson Road. Though it was quite close by luckily the derailment did not obstruct the roadway. The freight train was traveling at a slow speed and only two freight cars fully loaded with lumber from Interfor were involved. Except for one bundle the whole load appears intact though what shape the bundles on the bottom side are remains to be seen.

This may affect the ability to ship slag out of the facility until the mess is cleared up, the track is inspected and any problems dealt with.  How long that will all take is unknown.
