Camera mounted in rear facing locomotive (I am told it was 4th out in consist of 4 engines).It occurred in Illinois.Watch, especially to the left — watch the trees bend, debris in the air, and you can actually see the tornado pass from right to left.The trestle seen at the end of the video was moved out of alignment to the left 18 inches — the tank car was a load of Ethylene Oxide — nasty stuff.

I-cab caught this one realllllly well.Videos like this are powerful to watch. In this video you’ll be able to see the railcars as they make their way down the tracks in a way that seems pretty run-of-the-mill.What can’t a tornado destroy.

However, eventually, the wind and rain starts to pick up pretty heavily before it goes completely out of control, with the forces of mother nature pushing the cars completely off of the tracks and wreaking havoc the best way that she knows how.

Life can really throw you a curve ball at any time and this is essentially the textbook definition of exactly that phenomenon.As we can see from the footage, the people on the train that day probably had quite an adrenaline rush.
