Here is a little writeup I found on the major CSX Derailment in Princeton IN on Sunday 17 June 2018:

June 18, 2018 - Around 7pm CST Sunday, June 17th, a southbound CSX mixed freight, Q0513-17,(Avon, IN - Waycross, GA) derailed midway into it's train just south of Princeton, Indiana on the CE&D Subdivision. The power for the train remained upright and the crew escaped without injury, according to reports. The initial thoughts are that the derailment was caused by a kink in the tracks due to the high heat, causing the train to derail close to the north end of King Siding, next to the Toyota tracks. The area was evacuated overnight tank cars, reportedly carrying propane burned off.
The derailment caused a major CSX route that includes the Henderson and CE&D Subdivisions to be out of service through the area, except for some local traffic. RJ Corman derailment clean-up crews arrived early this morning and cleanup of the site is underway.
As of about 3pm CST the area was re-opened to residents and traffic. Just how long before the track is open to trains, remains unknown at this time. - is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
