Low speed, no passengers, but two tracks blocked.

I hope it is not a SD70MACH .

A buddy of mine lives there in Crystal Lake and got some photos. Hulcher was on the scene by 1:30. According to. UP track maintainer he talked to, a rail adjacent to the switch frog rolled over resulting in derailed locomotive and destroyed switch frog.

Yikes! Could have been worse! Does this affect any main line ops of Amtrak? Just curious!

Thanks to your friend for letting you share their photos here, Kevink!
Never like to see a derailment or equipment damaged, but love seeing Hulcher’s Vultures Cats— esp in action!
