    Wow!! Right place at the right (wrong) time! Probably far enough away to be out of danger but I've see train derailment debris fields spread over a hundred feet from the rail bed. The videographer here might have been much less fortunate. GREAT footage of just how long it takes to stop a train... even when the engine is completely stationary! For a long time each incoming car was traveling very fast!
