This week we cover a topic that hit a bit too close to home for residents of Elgin and Bartlett, Illinois. On Thursday, November 3rd, 2011 a northbound Canadian National freight train derailed 28 of its 120 cars on the crossing of the EJ&E Railroad and the Canadian Pacific Railway. This derailment was serious and could have caused several fatalities. I'll have our correspondent John Means on for the whole episode as he shares his views and discusses yours. Robby Gragg, our guest last week, will also be on. If you have a question, or opinion about this accident, please do not hesitate to call in. You may call in at 1-858-777-5957 to speak with your host Alex Wood, correspondent John Means and guest Robby Gragg. Don't miss it!
