In the comments below the facebook story where I first saw this, someone says that this kind of derailment "happens every day" and is "pretty minor." Obviously, it's no Lac Megantic, and I'm certainly not trying to make it anymore dramatic than it is. But that sure as hell doesn't seem like something that happens every day. I've never worked for a railroad, so I'll leave it to the railroad men to tell me how it is on that.
