Report Says Rain Washout May Have Caused Virginia Train Derailment


A federal rapporteur says that near Washington last month, the railway line has come to the end of the washing of the rocks that washed the rails.

WTOP-FM gave a preliminary National Transportation Safety Board report on the freight train issued on Monday, May 19, in Alexandria, Va. It rained 5.5 inches during the storms 10 days before the rain.

The train cars were sent to a bridge, but nobody was hurt.

The report shows a 26-foot extension of a massively unsupported curve under the CSX train. An overhead drone photo shows what looks like an anchor under concrete ties that hold one of the rails where the 31-rail vehicle leaves most of the rails.
