Got coal? There was quite a bit of it laying on the ground at the west switch of Hudson after this westbound BNSF coal load derailed. There were no injuries and no engines were involved. The derailment did, however, take out the west switch at Hudson as well as the eastbound signal. Crews definitely have their work cut out for them!
The train loaded at the Black Thunder Mine (in the Powder River Basin) and was headed for Amarillo, TX.
