If I had a RR that ran through the yard, I'd be hurting for money. Trains are so cool, I'd sit there and watch everyday. LOL

Hey, at least you didn't have to do, or pay for the cleanup :D

I guess that your property is in Ideal, Georgia, right? I live in Fitzgerald, Georgia and work for CSX Railroad. I ride trains on that same rail almost every day. I recognized the carnage from your pics. The cause of the derailment was that the rails spread too wide and the railcars actually fell in between. I'm very surprised that the engines didn't derail too. I was on a train that derailed four autoracks filled with brand new Nissans just north of Manchester, Georgia about two years ago. What a mess! CSX is self-insured and all the autos are shredded for salvage. They will not even sell a tire off of the autos. They don't want to be held liable later on down the road. Anyway you WILL be getting a very nice chunk of money for all the damage and mess on your property. Good luck!

From the photo's, it looks like that stretch had concrete ties. Unless there was a stretch of wood ties where it actually derailed............it's not real likely that wide gage was the cause.

Without knowing any info, my first thought (given the time of year and concrete ties) on the cause...............would be a track buckle due to warm weather.


Anyway you WILL be getting a very nice chunk of money for all the damage and mess on your property. Good luck!
If they used his property to gain access to the derailment site, I'm surprised they didn't ask permission (with at least a verbal agreement to pay damages/access rights) ahead of time.

That's what I always do.
