I just got an email that there was a Derailment near Valentine on the BNSF Seligman Sub.  Anyone hear anything?  Hope everyone is okay.

Looking at ATCS, No trains are moving between Peach Springs and Valentine.


From my source, it was a Car vs Train.  There are cars on the ground.  Hazmat involved.

Hearing that it was a possible head-on. Stack train and a rail train.

On Tuesday, June 5th, 2018 at 05:00 p.m. CDT, we received a preliminary report of a train derailment on the Seligman Subdivision in Arizona involving the S-MEMSCO1-02L impacting both main lines. The estimated time of opening has not been determined at this time.

BNSF will continue to provide you with additional information as it becomes available. Customers may experience delays of 24-48 hours or longer on shipments moving through this area.

From one of my sources: "Sounds like the work train was on main 2 and the stack was going down main 1. There are now 2 fatalities so far."  Again, Prayers go out to everyone involved.
