Coal Train Tracker
More than a dozen coal trains have derailed in 2012 already, with record-setting temperatures across the US contributing to the epidemic (hot weather causes steel rails to buckle). National Wildlife Federation’s Coal Train Tracker lets you keep tabs on the situation, and you can learn more about the dangers of coal exports by visiting NWF.org/coalexports.
Click on the red balloon icons for more information about each crash. You can also zoom and pan around using your mouse or the buttons on the left hand side of the map.
