Train Derails Due to Large Tornado

Happened 7Jan2008 on the Union Pacific railroad near Harvard IL. You can see the trees being whipped, hear debris hitting the trailing engine from which the video came, and then see debris flying through the air from the F3 tornado that blows some cars over. Then the rest of the train carried along by its' momentum smashes its' way along creating even more of a mess.

And that's "only" a F3 tornado, imagine a F5

The forces involved to initiate such destruction are just astounding.

Re: Train Derails Due to Large Tornado

To clean that shit up would really suck~!
That's sweet as fuck though; imagine playin' a guitar solo right on top of that camera ... that's be so awesome
So glad I know where they have the train cameras at now haha
