Remarks & Notes 
Happy Friday the 13th. After making a setout on the industry track, an eastbound roadswitcher out of Williston was impacted by the setout rolling back out onto main 2 due to a lack of hand brakes. This caused the roadswitcher's consist to derail into the side of a passing Kalama to Ulen empty grain train on main 1. A total of 42 cars derailed. Photo taken minutes after first responders arrived.

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.
