Re: GDLK Derailment
Since the cars fell inward I believe it was pulling out. If it was shoving back I believe the cars would have fallen outward. It would seem that the brakes hadn't released on the rear of the train while the head end was pulling. This was the through freight heading for Elkhart. This train sometimes runs long lately. I've heard several reports of more than 100 cars.
