I guess the hail followed by 180,000 lb train cars being blown off the track aren't proof enough?

Watching this video I thought, "well this won't be too bad.." cause most of the cars just basically fell over. Then I spotted the tanker car heading right to the locomotive.. I nearly pissed myself!

Thats weird, I was just looking at this video a day or two ago. Good to see I wasn't the only one who enjoyed it. I wasn't expecting a derailment either though. I figured it would just pass over and the cars would rock a bit, but not go off rail.

I was kind of thinking the same thing. Notice the loco was the only thing which really stayed ON the tracks proper? Was thinking maybe weight was a factor there, those cars could've all been empty?
