BAD DAY FOR UNION PACIFIC


Yesterday morning at 7:20 we had about 20 railroad cars derail on the east edge of town. It was a mess, there were at least five cars and all the coal that was in them in a pile the size of a house right on top of the tracks. It brought rail traffic to a complete stop. The boss on the job said the clean up crew came all the way from Kansas. He said thy were going to work all night to get the tracks clear. When we where there, there was all kinds of heavy equipment working on the pile. They had trucks parked along the tracks for blocks. The good news is nobody got hurt.
