Looks kike Conrail put a couple of cars into Mantua Creek at Paulsboro (anybody know if Mantua Creek has anything to do with the old model railroad manufacturer known as - Mantua...?) earlier today. One car wsa breached and released a bunch of vinyl chloride, which is nasty in high concentrations or if you breath it.
 
Bridge is interesting, it is a swing bridge, but just one leaf, and pretty clearly pretty old. Story is the bridge collapsed, derailing the train.

Well gosh darn it Clyde, you beat me to it! I posted in Regional Ops about the same thing. What is Vinyl Chloride used for anyway?

And as a Hazmat (not that i wasnt to breath the stuff, pretty curst irritating to the reswpiratory tract), fairly low on the totem pole. Nothing like, say, HF (saw a car marked for HF come through town today, dunno if it was loaded or not).
