    See in real time, Min: -10:15

    Luckily the derailment was not that serious
    969 New US deaths on 9/22/20, 0.01% rate is bad, 1% is atrocious, a death rate of 5-6% is catastrophically failing, wear a mask

    Cool

    They were, and the trains below, very lucky on this one........!

    Didn't take long to get the heavy lifters in there either.........One thing that helps them, it isn't a Rail yard full of tracks below, they have lots of working area to swing up and over the derailed equipment......

    Bet this will up and running in less than a day, baring any issues getting those Loco's removed etc.........

    Thank you Sir for the links.........

    Ahhh! "Breaking America" one day at a time! What a place for that to happen - very lucky indeed not to tip over the edge.

    What those cranes and operators must cost per hour! They had those cranes there in just hours after the derail.

    Be sure to checkout both cams. PTX#2 cam has operator with moves and closeups. https://youtu.be/7aNc8iVY-r8
