CSX Bethlehem Branch Lansdale PA March 3 2006
More on the derailment in Lansdale. Part One can be found here.
As the sidewinder lifted the tank car, the bolts holding the joint were cut. "Poo Bear", a return visitor to the branch, is actually the nickname of the operator.
Once the rail was loose, it was positioned under the wheels.
With one truck back on the rails, the sidewinder was moved down to the other end.
