Hey Paulie, we had a big train derailment a few blocks from my house today and had four double stacked box cars almost falling off an elevated bridge into a busy traffic intersection that tied up the South Side of Chicago for five hours this morning. I was thinking, "where's Paulie and his camera?" You'd have done a masterful job on that, my friend!

Hey Pat was that at 47 th and Archer? My uncle works for Union Pacific do you know which railroad? Did not hear anything about this today.

I believe the rail was BNSF. They shut down Archer from 6:30 AM until almost 2:00 PM, which caused massive traffic jams elsewhere, as that is a major artery in the city.
