May 9, 2007- Photos of SRB train derailment

Got these the other day– this was a train carrying SRB segments to KSC that derailed in Alabama at the Tenn-Tombigbee River while crossing a low bridge back on May 3rd. Looks like only one of the segments (in the white containers) left the track.

No word yet on whether the late fall/December launch that they were to be used for will be affected.
