Train Wreck 1

We apply the label "Train Wreck" to situations sometimes, but the reality of the collision of of two freight trains on the same track, head on, in broad daylight with loads including cars and sand is absolutely astonishing. It happened June 24, 2012 just north of the Texas Panhandle. Three crew member lives were lost, and the damage is estimated in excess of $14 million. The debris is being cleaned up, but the twisted metal remains testimony to an incredible, metamorphic impact of force and mass. There will be more pictures.
