Heard about it but took my chances anyway, jesus that was awful this morning. Had to let four 5 trains pass before I could fit on one...

Same here, except that after I couldn't get on the first four trains I got out and resorted to taking the (2)/(3) instead, which was a couple of blocks away.

Good to know that no one was injured in that derailment. I see a R-142 on the first photo of the links provided.

Yeah it was a (6) along the Worth St curve. Crap piece of track with a speed limit of 20. Many T/O wrap it right out the bridge and keep it wrapped. Technically improper operation and I hope it wasn't that.

I read the prelim report and it said the rail rolled over and so far no charges against the crew, of course that could change....

Yup, about 100 feet outside of the station, but just south before the diamond ;). You never know with TA's stance that generally everything is preventable by the operating crew.

 

@ Lex, everything's internal, everything that happens down here has a report attached to it, from a major derailment to a minor door problem. All is needed is access to a TA computer (or knowing someone who has access to one) to download any incident, anywhere in the system. These IRS'S typically disperses of all the rumors regarding any incident.

That's why the C/R went for incident testing too, he should have know that the train was going to derail. At least that's the TA's thought....

I can stop laughing and crying simultaneously SMH ;) Technically, where the spot was the C/R would have just stuck their head back inside the cab window... getting ready for the train going on the ground lol!

Haven't seen the report yet. I asked about it today but no one knew any specifics other than the rail rolling, although many train ops do fly out of that station on the N/B...hopefully the incident T/O was doing proper speed...

 

General question for you or any of the other employees here - are incident reports located within TENS itself (perhaps within SITS)? I've looked around but haven't been able to find them. Obviously don't post the answer publicly, PM it to me...
