Sounds like they got the engine or car back on the railway in 10 minutes. Now that's snappy fixin'!

Why was my comment removed? I was probably the first to report that horribly insensitive previous comment.

Also, I would in no way consider 7th & New York "northeast" Lawrence. It is just East Lawrence, or even Downtown.

I agree, guppypunkhead. Thanks! -Caroline Trowbridge, community editor

It's tough to call it "northeast" when it's south of the river. But then again, I don't think north Lawrence is wide enough to have an "east" and "west" part. "East Lawrence" is certainly more accurate than "downtown"... but it's west of Haskell... OH GOD WHAT ARE WE GONNA CALL IT

Wow. Someone got a little happy with the removed button.

I misspelled rude and decided the heck with it and edited out all but the period, since I couldn't delete my entire posting. CT figured that was what I was up to.

There were good reasons to delete those comments. I think the message we need to take here is stop the rudeness.

What happened to free speeach? Oh that's right this is Lawrence,KS where you have no rights or no say so what so ever and they can raise your taxes without a vote from the public on it.

Yo, bull - did you bother to READ the article??? This is a different story than the one about the woman who died.

But then, maybe your neighbors don't actually have ALL the information, but hey, it is free.

Hadn't seen so many comments whacked on a thread in ages. Somebody PM me & let me know what was so dreadful. Inquiring minds want to know....

There's derailments of trains moving on the mainline which do lots of damage and then there's slow yard derailments which with competent carmen and their re-railing frogs are cleaned up in a short time.

You & Snap can check my PM's to you-all.
