And remember that tracks run just behind the city county building downtown.Carrying every kind of hazardous materials imaginable.It could be a real disaster.The city could react to an emergency but there is not much they could do to prevent one.We have been lucky for a long time.

Ed. note: One could view it as lucky or one could view it as the result of Norfolk Southern, CSX and others having processes and procedures that have worked well in promoting safety for communities, their workers and for the benefit of their customers.

Fort Wayne is a railroad town and benefits mightily from the presence of one of the world's strongest rail companies. It should also be noted that NS just announced its assistance to firms making $2.1 billion of investments in 2010 for business expansion along its routes.
