Not quite modelling but the other half is from North Dakota and I did some gricing in the area (summer time)


Preliminary report of Casslleton derailment and subsequent collision http://www.ntsb.gov/doclib/reports/2014/Casselton_ND_Preliminary.pdf



An axle failure on a grain car may have lead to the initial de-railment NTSB have seized a broken axle and a pair of wheels for examination.


Interestingly 18 of the 21 tank cars involved in the collision were breached and the locos at the head end of the oil train destroyed BNSF 4934BNSF 5958
