    Default Video Released from 2013 BNSF Wreck

    This video was just released by the NTSB, and includes forward looking cab cameras from both locomotives. You get a first hand view of the collision and derailment, as seen by the engineer of both trains.

    The video comes from the forward-facing on-board image recorders from the two trains involved in the accident. Video from the Grain Train lead locomotive 6990 was downloaded from the undamaged GE Lococam on-board image recorder. Parametric data from the Grain Train lead locomotive 6990 was downloaded from the undamaged event recorder. Video from the Crude Oil Train lead locomotive 4934 was obtained from data transmitted wirelessly when the emergency brakes were applied, and parametric data was downloaded from the trailing distributed power unit locomotive 6684.

    The engineer and conductor must have been taken on the rides of their life! I hope everyone was ok.
