View Full Version : Derailment en-route to WDW - 6 dead

I was so sad yesterday to hear the news on radio that 14 cars had derailed on a train from Washington DC to Walt Disney World, Florida. They reported 6 dead.

My heart goes out to those folk and their families. To go anytime is bad enough, but when on way to such a happy place seems too cruel.

I suppose, with fourteen carriages over, we should be grateful there were only 6 fatalities.

It is terrible. But they were going from Florida to D.C. They were only an hour into their trip when the train derailed. My FIL had friends who were supposed to travel on the auto train this week. Wonder what will happen to the train schedule.

Thanks for clearin that up MJ. Our local radio said it was the other way. Don't suppose it matters now.
