    OMG!! What a helpless feeling it must have been seeing that tanker car coming at you. I hope the engineer was O.K.

    Going through a tornado, losing part of your train, then having a tanker car rolling at you like that and no curse words on the audio? Poor guys must have been speechless. I'm glad they were okay........good grief.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    That is one heck of a video.
    I havenít heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    Based on the stability of the image I would say it was tied down to the engine somewhere looking aft. You can tell this by looking at the platform just in front of the camera, it's very stable but the next car is moving about. I suspect there was more than one engine and this was the last one. Probably why you don't hear any voices, there more than likely up front.

    I would say that this not only would ruin my day, but possibly the entire week, and maybe the month!
