Train Derailment in Montana, Jan 17, 2012

This is a link to a story about this train & semi-trailer truck accident in Montana just across the North Dakota border.

Here is an update on the semi driver.

I went past this very train wreck twice on my train trip.

The first was in the middle of the night on my way to Minnesota and I was sleeping.  OK, trying to sleep..

The second was during the day… and if I had my wits about me I could have taken a number of really interesting photos…

There were a variety of train cars with varying degrees of damage being moved around by an excavator.  And there emblazoned along the side of one metal hulk a huge yellow UPS on the brown-painted trailer.

Does UPS ship some of their trailers via the train?  I thought they used all overland trucking…

Day 24 is “Guilty Pleasure”

Arrow and I were each able to stretch out on two seats to sleep.  Many others were stuck in one seat for sleeping… NOT very comfortable.  It took me until the fourth night to figure out all the “tricks” to sleeping comfortably in coach class seats… which I will reveal in a post all about our train trip!

Day 13 is “In Your Bag”

I got a chuckle out of this one… and waited to take this until our trip so I got a pic of what was “in our bags”, for our train trip!
