Train derailment in Montesano Washington 11/4/2007

About: freight train derails:seattle times

This was in the news briefly Sunday morning so we took a field trip over there and also visited the Satsop nuclear facility (more on that later).  The newspaper is reporting that the train was carrying soybeans, but it was sawdust from the mill down the road.   This is the closest that i have been able to get to a derailment ... i got some closeups of the wheels and the damage to the rails.  I think that the ties just rotted and the spikes come out under the weight of the boxcars.
