2. It looks like a big mess

I have to wonder if Union Pacific will repair the bridge or just abandon this section and sell the trackage north of Tempe to BNSF.

4. Apparently there was another derailment a month ago

Not as bad and not a news item. Apparently it surprised Tempe’s mayor to learn about it.
