wow the state of that road in the 3rd pic

The cars filled with fuel somehow became uncoupled, causing them to roll downhill into the town and derail, said the spokesman, Joe McGonigle.
I wonder if some kids had been fiddling with them or terrorists maybe even bruce lee's one inch punch from beyond the grave?

Hear, their, everyware ;)
Wonder if this is anywhere near or related in some way to the Can/US Fuel Pipeline they are trying to build but keep running into lots of 'environmental' opposition?

Strange how it happened in the middle of a town...

Is there anything people won't find a conspiracy theory in these days?

The opposition for that pipeline came from a different country and the pipeline will run from the OTHER SIDE of Canada down to the Gulf. This train was heading for Maine. A quick look at the map should show you that they are thousands of miles apart.

It's not strange that it happened in a town at all - the train was stabled overnight and generally they don't built rail depots in the middle of nowhere. They tend to be in towns.

People on the internet are just obsessed with conspiracy these days. Everything is some sort of conspiracy.

Wasn't there some low budget made for TV film that had a similar story to this? Out of control train with highly flammable cargo?

Hope the casualties aren't too high.
