I am real glad it was not a freight train hauling oil from Bakken field. And it was at a site easily
repaired….it should note also, that another BNSF has another “siding” derailment near Cut
Bank the same day. The long super trains might be a negative result (100 cars) of causing rail
problems. Just glad I was not a passenger & the long bus ride.
