A family friend was on the said train, she said the sound was extremely loud and "terrifying."

If a train derails in "Grand Central Station" as the article states we have a huge problem, seeing as "Grand Central Station" is a post office.

It would be much more likely that a train would derail in Grand Central Terminal.

Sounds like a line from the Inside Man movie. :P

Too bad its not possible to cut the lights instead and have the A/C on. I always carry a working flashlight in my bag anyways...

 

At least this was a low speed derailment. It would have been much worse if the train was traveling and its normal cruise speed
