Any word on the recent(?) 9 car derailment of an M&D chicken feed train? I saw several photos on it on Trainorders.com
 
Apparently the only casualty was a poor dog that in its dog house that was next to a garage that was crushed under one of the cars. Accident was pretty bad with cars all turned over. Two CF7's were in charge of the train.

Train Jumps Tracks in Worcester County
 
[Eight rail cars carrying corn jumped the tracks. (Photo: WBOC)
The crash destroyed a garage, killing the owner's dog in the process.]
 
NEWARK, Md.- An accident early Thursday shut down a local railroad
crossing and destroyed a garage
south of Newark, Md. It happened around 8:30 a.m. near the
intersection of Route 113 and Basket
Switch Road.
 
A rail broke and caused eight rail cars carrying corn to jump the
tracks, according to Eric
Callaway, the president of the shortline Maryland and Delaware
Railroad.
 
One of the train cars ran into a large garage belonging to homeowner
Vaughn Dale, whose home is
located on Route 113. The collision caused the garage to collapse.
Inside the building were
bicycles, tools and a brand new car that sustained damage.
 
Dale said the train sounded like a tornado coming through.
 
"I knew the train was coming by and I looked out the window and I see
all this commotion and the
cars and what not, falling off," Dale said. "I said, 'Oh Lord, it's
done jumped the tracks.'"
 
Dale's 6-year-old collie dog was killed by the garage's collapse, but
no people were injured.
Callaway said the railroad plans to provide compensation for the loss
of the dog.
 
The 50-car train was corn from Frankford, Del., to the Tyson chicken
feed mill in Snow Hill,
Callaway said.
 
A clean-up crew from Richmond, Va., has arrived on the scene with
cranes and other equipment to
clean up the accident.
 
Officers are still investigating what happened.
