There's lots of wreck photos on RailPictures.Net, but I don't believe that any of them show a rail car bent almost double the vertically! The hopper in the lower left is sitting upright, note it's load of coal is in place. The hopper in the upper right has tipped over spilling it's load. The hopper in the middle, even though drastically bent ,retains more than half of it's load and thus has to be upright. I hope the photographer was in some type of aircraft, even so this picture is worth a thousand words !

It took 5 days to reopen the line? must have been a heck of a lot of track damage! sure glad noone was hurt.
