Album Info:On June 28, 2009 around 8 PM, CSX Q675-27 was northbound between Atlanta, GA and Wauhatchie, TN when it derailed 10 cars between Dalton, GA and Tunnel Hill, GA. Some wheels close to the rear of the train somehow came off the tracks at North Dalton, MP 99.4. This however did not derail the train until it reached Rocky Face, MP 104.0, where the wheels hit an industry lead switch which sent 10 cars tumbling on their sides. This derailment occured on the W&A Sub and closed the line for approximately 22 hours.
