This view of the Metro North derailment gives you a better idea of the scene: seven cars, with four of them off the tracks and the front car literally inches from the Hudson River.  The train locomotive is in the rear.  Multiple passengers and witnesses say the train took the curve too fast.  (Photo: Edwin Valero / AP via The New York Times)

This is huge. If you didn’t know, it’s on one of the largest and busiest train lines in the United States - that isn’t Amtrak - and includes numerous stops along lines in populous New York City suburbs in New York and Connecticut. And today is a big travel day after the Thanksgiving holiday. This only gets messy from here.

If you joyride a train, you’ll prob crash into a house

A derailed train on Tuesday crashed into the side of a house in Saltsjöbaden, a town of about 10,000 outside Stockholm. A woman, reportedly a twenty-something cleaner for the train company, somehow snagged the keys to the train and drove it away before it crashed into the building. (Lisbeth Salander, is that you?) The cleaner was injured in the incident, but amazingly, there are no reports of injuries of people in the residence.

Reblogging because I’ve done this before.
