Hearing about something west of 112 Bridge Buckland. possible derailment, fires, 2 trains involved.

EDRJ derailed but did not know and 28N found the damage. Thankfully doesn't seem to be a major event.

Hopefully, the Greenfield Recorder link holds, otherwise < buckland derailment > into a search bar should get you there: http://www.recorder.com/buckland-train- ... ay-4561405" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
It looked like slurries through the trees in the photo, and a nearby school wasn't evacuated.

14R today had 20-30 VTR salt cars and a slug of at least 25 new painted SNC boxcars.

Salt would come from upstate NY like Lansing? Or maybe the original G&W?

Not sure, but somewhere that connects with NS.

Are they still setting these salt blocks off at Hoosick Junction/Hoosick Middle or are they running them through to Deerfield?

No idea on location, but previous car reports via Fritz indicate they are Cargill reporting marks

If it's Cargill it could be its Cayuga Salt Mine at Lansing, NY. The other two Cargill De-icing Technology mines are much further away at Cleveland, OH and Avery Island, LA

Tonight something rare ran through West Deerfield. Running west, a not really too long freight with mid train power. Never saw that on PAS before.
