Six days after a derailment of loaded centrebeam cars at this exact spot in Cochrane Yard NOKL 732330 wound up on the ground August 26, 2004 causing a fair amount of damage to Yard Trackage. After this derailment was cleaned up, this area of the Yard was "redesigned" by way of straightening track along with a relocation of a couple of switches in order to better accomodate these long and heavy cars. I'm happy to report that everything is now running smoothly over this section of the Yard.
