Nobody mentioned this? Is this forum active?

Part of the bridge collapsed but Union Pacific does not know if the bridge caused the derailment or if the derailment caused the collapse.

DeGraff said about 1,600 feet of rail will be replaced and that repairs to the bridge will take multiple days.

That's the Choctaw sub from McAlester Ok,would not surprise me if the derailment took out the bridge deck.
the Choctaw sub is mostly general freight and intermodal.
