Everyone - There is now a Wikipedia page concerning Amtrak #4 Mendon, MO derailment June 27:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2022_Miss ... derailment
I had problems finding the location of the wreck searching Google Maps - Chariton County's roads are
identified not by name - the three-digit number is used which in this case was 113 - and was uncertain
if the site was east or west of Mendon - looking at the surrounding fields was no help with some having
no discernible vegetation - I was able to find the #113 crossing by the nearby visible block signals...
From the various videos initially there was not a way to get an accurate car count - the Trains airview
still picture with the entire consist showing the two locomotives, baggage car and seven Superliner
cars (I originally thought there was 8) making a total of eight cars on Amtrak #4 east through MO 6/27.
Has there been any updated reports - 2:00 PM EDT to be exact - about any track or service restoration
and if the Amtrak equipment is still at the site pending the NTSB investigation?
Has there been any news about Amtrak crew members that may have been injured?
I have seen NO mention so far about #4's crew...
The front facing camera on #133 video should be very important in finding out how this accident happened...
