LDN -- Top Stories

In this shot over Elkhart, taken by LDN's aerial photographer/pilot Curtis Fox, one can see quite clearly the mess that the Elkhart Fire Department, Logan County EMA, Union Pacific Railroad, and many others had on their hands on Tuesday. The train derailment that occurred at approximately 10 p.m. Monday evening left a total of 18 rail cars and their cargo damaged. Much of that cargo was new vehicles. Damage also occurred to the tracks, a metal shed, railstation, signal devices and power poles and lines. Here, you can see there are 16 cars that had been pulled into the green space between the tracks and Route 66, with one in the process of coming off. Also note the number of vehicles gathered in spots near the wreckage, which signifies the large number of people working on the cleanup.
