  1. The derailment is under a bridge for I-10. Chances are slim you could see much on aerial photos.

  2. I would like to see aerial photos of the derailment site. Were the grain cars empty or loaded? Where were the derailed cars in the block and the consist? Was the train accelerating or slowing? Was there string-lining or excess buff forces?

    So many questions.
