Just came by the derailment. Couldn't get very close
but went up on the footbridge to the Riverlink Park
and had a pretty good view to the east. Looks like
most of it is cleaned up although there were still a
few cars laying around. Just east of the old freight
station - by a few feet at most from where I was
standing. Another 100 yards west and it would have
been into the station and the park.
