Burlington Northern Santa Fe or Union Pacific? Hopefully no injuries.

Yikes, LPG tanks. Could have been WAY worse. Looks like westbound with those empty center beams.

Certainly seems like Tehachapi makes the news more often than other hills. Maybe the RR's should re-think shorter trains over that hill. I know it'd create more traffic flow issues.

I'm wondering what's been going on with trains going on the ground these days up there compared to when it was still SP and Santa Fe!

Probably happened just as often, if not more. Trainorders wasn’t around then to report the daily railroading mishaps.
