You Don’t See This Too Often! Train Derails And Then Climbs Escalator At Chicago Airport

Train Derails and Climbs Escalator at Chicago Airport This image really caught my eye!  A Chicago public-transit train operator may have dozed off and her train derailed and then scaled an escalator at O’Hare International Airport, one of nation’s busiest airports.

The derailment happened just before 3 a.m. Monday, March 21 at the end of the Chicago Transit Authority’s Blue Line at O’Hare International Airport. The timing of the accident helped avoid an enormous disaster, as the underground Blue Line station is usually packed with travelers. More than 30 people were hurt, but none had life-threatening injuries.
