Can you believe this senseless vandalism?  All new vehicles transported via autoracks must have fuel. And ignition keys.  Somehow, some brainless moron(s) broke into an autorack in Niagara Falls down by the South Siding Switch (Chippawa Spur) and started up a mini-van just to crash it against the end of the railcar.  No wonder railroad police often get short fused with trespassers.  (The impressive structure in the background is the Loretto Christian Life Centre)

  1. As I pointed out to the cops, Pierre, the tank car had hoses cut at the other end as well. The train had been left there while the power was in Montrose Yard.

  2. Funny,at 1st glance ,i thought the car was ill secured and crashed in the wall as the train slammed the brakes.
