Trains were carrying coal and phosphate rock. I'm guess the fuel spill mentioned is from the tanks on the locomotives. I think they can be 4000 - 5000 gal each.

That might just down the street from Alan. It is about 10 miles from me. It looks like the locals might get some short term income cleaning up?

Not real close.

In this day and age it strikes me as incredible we can still have train collisions.
