I found this tragedy on a maintenance spur off the BNSF A line track near I-394 & Hwy 100. It seems that a miscalculation was made as to how long the spur really was at some point. Every time I bike past this I wonder what that day was like for the unfortunate souls involved. It’s been sitting in the mud for at least a month & cannot be an easy thing to put right. Exactly how big of a crane do you need to lift a 89,000 pound railcar and move it 50 feet back to the track?
