"Boom" ; BNSF Near Galena, IL

Postby Gilbert B Norman » Thu Mar 05, 2015 10:22 pm

Reuters, as well as WBBM 780/105.9, report that a BNSF oil train derailed near Galena:

Neither source is suggesting the incident is that serious, but there have been just too many "booms" of late.

Addendum; now the "alternative media" gets in their licks:

Both sources have identified the lading as Bakken Crude.

One wonders how much ammunition this gives the folks up in Lacrosse who are against the double-tracking through the marsh there.
