Holy 136-pound-rail-being-bent-like-wet-noodles, Batman! How did this happen? Runaway cars? Defective switch?

A small chunk of railing may not bend at all, but a long enough section will bend with the force of small car pulling it. In old times, they used this advantage to reline rails using breakdown trains' cranes to actually pick up the railroad by removing the spikes and hooking on the tie.

I just found out what happened finally, this derailment as well as the one about a month ago were caused by a bad frog in the switch, located by the car they are currently working on.
