Another indication, if one was needed, that 2020 will go down in history for all the wrong reasons: a video has surfaced of a train losing the rooftops of many of its cars as it passes under a bridge. Here’s the incredible video of the incident that happened recently outside of Memphis, Tennessee:
At first glance this seems completely unbelievable. The train was rolling on an existing track, under a bridge that presumably has seen countless numbers of trains pass underneath it without incident. Why would a train’s cars all of a sudden be too high to pass under that bridge?
A closer look at the train, however, shows that one car’s roof was already largely ripped up before it passes under the bridge. That torn-up roof stuck up further than normal and thus caught on the bridge, Then a domino effect wreaked havoc on the following cars. Keep in mind that a train can often take a kilometre or more to come to a full stop.
