Great coverage of the derailment. So, what exactlt happend?
 
The local was backing down a cut of salt cars into "Salt City" salt company when the last engine derailed due to poor track which is maintained by Salt City. 2nd derailment in a week at that spot. The rear trucks also came off the track as well as the rear truck on the lead unit.
