Just when we thought the city was getting a grip on the flooding disaster, they have a new challenge.
In the middle of the night, a railroad bridge over the Bow River in the city buckled under the weight of a passing train. Six tanker cars, filled with petroleum products, are on the bridge, but not in the water. At the moment, the cars are cabled together and anchored to train engines on both ends of the bridge, and the tanker cars are being pumped out.
Here is a link to pictures and details ...
CALGARY RAIL BRIDGE FAILURE
I have had so many friends drop by, asking about what is happening in our "neck of the woods", and this seems to be the best way for me to give updates. Personally, we are fine ... no hint of what is happening in the city that is less than 40 km. from our home.
Thanks for the interest and caring messages ...
