Site of a train wreck

Site of a train wreck
This spot was in the news a couple of weeks ago with a train de-railment. They dumped three cars worth of coal into this creek. It got cleaned up pretty quick but the wreck was blamed on a beaver and not lack of maintenance. Yes you can see two trees on the far side of the tracks that a beaver has brought down, but I suspect that three of the four culverts being blocked might have been a greater contributing factor, and the fourth is 50% plugged. An up date from yesterday, there are two large backhoes and a huge pile of rock on site and they are installing a new culvert. Not sure why they don't just clean out what they have, but I imagine it has more to do with politics and the vision that they are doing something than reality.
