Album Info:On July 17, 2008, Southbound CSX train was about to cross the NS at 13th St (14th St on the NS) interlocking. Being a very shallow angle crossing, the points of the diamond are moveable and controlled by the NS Dispatcher. The CSX train "split" the points of the Diamond and instead of continuing south on the CSX, it headed south on the NS! These photos show the track damage done when this happened.
