Union Pacific Train Derailment

Train derailed in Tama County

This is a picture of the Union Pacific Train Derailment in Montour, Iowa. My parents live right by it, so they sent some pictures. Said it sounded like thunder and a bunch of crashing noises and flashing lights everywhere.

We work at Deer Valley Ski Resort Signatures store (logo merchandise/apparel), and we are anxiously awaiting our spring shipment, which apparently was on the derailed train. Actually I think it's on its way but the story has captured our attention.
