CT-2 Derailment

As I was sitting at work at Winters Brothers on Tuesday night, I heard across
the scanner that CT-2 went on the ground. Supposedly it happened about half way
between Winters Brothers and Tilcon. I drove by there on the way home and the 2
engines on the west end looked like they were between the guage. Wouldnt suprise
me a bit. That section of track on the Tilcon Runner hasnt seen a new tie since
Conrail. And with the Main Out Of Service between MP78 and MP79 there was no way
to run around the train after it looked like thet got the loads deliverd to
Tilcon. Cant run trains if you dont have track.
Next stop, Willoughby
