Rut ro! Looks like they derailed at Hiawatha, KS today, too! This is going to make for some traffic headaches!

A piece of rail through a kid's bedroom window? Holy s***!

Also, anybody else notice that the 15th is the one year anniversary of the two train derailment there in Topeka? Not a good week of November for the UP historically in KS.

I was just there, and was able to take a bunch of pictures. Quite the scene. One main should be open by noon. I'll post some of the pics later. Thanks for the heads up, Rich.

Main 1 is now open, with the first wb rolling through around 16:00. The first was the 5573 west, followed by the 7464. I'm sure there's a parade to follow.

UP sent a few GSR trains over the BNSF including a westbound auto that ran via the Topeka Sub.
