Derailment at Plevna, Montana

Derailment at Plevna, Montana

Tank cars burning. Taken on the BNSF Hettinger Subdivision near Plevna, Montana. This is in SE Montana near Baker. I spent some time here in 2007. I worked my Herzog PLUS Train from Terry, MT to Hettinger, ND.

    Sad story, hopefully no one was killed!

      No casualties except the tank cars, rail, ties, pasture and wheat fields.
      Trains now days have two man crews, Engineer and Conductor.
      A Brakeman will be on a work train crew if maintenance of way workers are on the ground.

You may fire when ready, Gridley
