Derailed Potash Cars in Saint John


Two potash cars derailed off the wye in east Saint John last week. I am told it was in the newspaper. Bob Boudreau took some photos of the hoppers yesterday and posted them on the web. link

I never noticed anything about that in the paper. Makes me wonder which day it actually was. Do you know what caused the derailment at all?

They derailed on April 8. Brief note from April 9 Telegraph Journal. Bob's photos show a rail turned over, so that was probably the cause rather than the effect, based on the slow speeds in that area. Just my opinion!

Just curious, which pictures is the one that shows the rail turned over?

I meant which picture, sorry for the lack of grammar!
