Train derails in Two Harbors MN: Earth wobble intensifies

On Thursday, Dec 19, an ore train derailed in Two Harbors, Minnesota, in early afternoon. The Canadian National Railway train, filled with iron ore pellets, derailed in Two Harbors at 1:14 p.m. on a bend in the tracks between Northshore Manufacturing and Two Harbors Lumber, an area known as the CN train yard.

A typical ore train has just over 100 cars, and between 20 and 50 cars came off the track. Uwe Kausch of Northshore Mfg said it looked like most of them were damaged or upended by the derailment. Kausch said the rail cars were everywhere, “stacked up like cord wood,” with some pointing up vertically.

LeRoy Veness, who owns a repair shop about 100 yards from the rail line, heard the derailment. He said, “Our whole building was rumbling” Andy Johnson saw taconite pellets flying into the air and heard a “loud rushing noise.”

Two crew members were hurt and were taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Two other crew members on the train were not hurt (Source).

In the past 30 days, there have been more than 15 derailments, two of which left the tracks and plowed into houses, killing the occupants. Train derailments . . . more of the almost daily new normal.
