EL Derailment

Derailment in progress towards the rear of the train. Although not spectacular in this view, the dust cloud in the rear of the image shows a derailment in progress, as this EL train went into emergency as I made this shot. We were following this train, and had taken shot's of it earlier, and came to this location. Towards the rear of the train, EXACTLY where the dust cloud is, is a signal, we scouted the signal shot and almost shot the train there, but instead shot a high shot from the bridge.... now wouldnt the signal shot have been interesting.... or worse. After the contest Ill add a shot showing the derailed cars everywhere....
