There was a derailment yesterday near the town of Mabton on BNSF's Yakima Valley Sub. Engines and several cars on the ground on an eastbound grainer. It looks like the cause was a trucker who collided with the train. Not sure how someone could miss seeing an oncoming train at this crossing, as there's a clear line of sight for kilometers either way, the crossing is clearly marked, and this happened in broad daylight. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
