Thank you, Bill. This is in Prince George, BC, Canada. They have investigators up here this morning to try to figure out what went wrong, and to assess damage, etc. Early reports suggested that someone may have forgotten to switch the tracks, causing the two trains to collide head on. After bringing in a water bomber and spraying retardent, the fire has burned out as of this morning. It could have been a lot more serious, because some of the cars were tankers filled with fuel. They managed to hook the cars which were not involved to another set of engines and remove them from the scene. For a small city of 70,000 people, it was the highlight of an otherwise lazy Saturday morning and afternoon. #4604239
