#6776: Well, that was a lesson well-learned, I guess.

Yesterday, it happened again. Derailment on the Horseshoe Curve near Altoona, PN. Long train with several unloaded lumber cars at the front, and they came right off the track.

Three weeks ago, to the day.

The train was moving slower this time, and the engines remained coupled to the rest of the train, but thee three lumber cars flopped over the same way.

Okay, look: lumber cars are light and should not be right behind the locomotives, unloaded, if the train is heading up the mountain. Okay, Norfolk Southern?
