Remarks & Notes 
A close in view of Amtrak's southbound Vermonter train #55 that struck a rock slide this morning shortly after 10 am south of Northfield, Vermont, and derailed. The locomotive - P42 102 - and head car left the rails and traveled into a wooded area and down an embankment. All five cars of the train are derailed with only four non-life-threatening injuries reported. The train was southbound on the NECR Roxbury Subdivision at the time of the derailment. Track speed in the area is 59 mph.
