I live here and it could have been a lot worse. It's not something you see everyday, and I am so thankful there was not liquid in the cars. But yes Kintra, these tracks are very close to homes and roads. I personally walk my dogs along the sides of these tracks to stay off the narrow roads. As of today, the railroad cars are still there.

I live right beside train tracks i have to drive beside the tracks on the same rocks the tracks sit on just to get to my house when the trains go by sometimes it vibrates our house. I am always worried a train could possibily derail into my house.

Why would you buy a house right on top of the tracks? Hope you never plan to sell.
