Never in a million years would I have expected to see this happening in a first world country like the USA.

many comments from the farcebook RP posting which state this happened in Whiting Indiana just out of Chicago.  Stated to have been a Norfolk Southern Intermodal service.

Reportedly now happening across the network.

Whatever you do, do not mention that the looters appear to be only from one particular colour group, that would be racist.

Chicago has the highest rate of cargo theft in the states, seems like someone with experience started it and everyone else joined in getting some too, Can't blame them. Extra RR special agents from other states have been put on duty in Illinois.

Dont be so coy boys. "White" people rob trains to, which doesn't matter really but for sake of argument. See people for their actions not their colour. ????

Some good info there thx for your view and the detail.

Why is Illinois so much more problematic than other parts of the USA is it because there is a high degree of traffic through the area?

Chicago has six of the seven biggest players in rail freight go through there. Only KCS doesnt go there since they dont have trackage that far North.
