Just an incredible catch.

Don’t know. A comment on YouTube clip IIRC stated that BNSF, CSX and UP all use that trackage.

Yes that is true but it looks like the transcon south single trackage point.  I will research.  In any case (and great post) there will be some rerouting going on right now major.

Got distracted by this earlier when the replay popped up in a feed.  That would've been terrifying.  Anyhow, FYI they've got another cam in the same spot focusing purely on the recovery and without chat.  It's been fascinating to watch the cranes set up and at work.  But taking way too long, I got stuff to do..

Here's the other cam.

Cool viewing really and a chance seeing the derailment strange it would happen on the bridge but going slowly as seen in the video.

It would be cool have one of these cams at Bunbury Street where we can watch live or even one at Chullora

What is impressive to me is the rapid clean up. A difficult job being up on a bridge but cranes ordered, set up and the derailed wagons and locos removed and track almost fully restored as I write this. Would have taken a week here just to get people on site to evaluate the issues.

Had a bo peep, ballast train on bridge and what looked to be a tamping machine. As you say, impressive.
