A train derailed going into Charles City, Iowa, hitting–yes this is true–a bar named DeRailed.
Now we have this.
Police say a freight train car that derailed in northern Iowa rolled into and damaged a trackside tavern called DeRailed.
He says it appears that the track separated and the grain car tipped about 45 degrees into the back of the bar.
It’s a good thing the driver of this train owned up to things and didn’t try to cover his tracks. I don’t think he did it on purpose. If he did, it must be one heck of a loco-motive. He might have lost track of what he was doing.
…sorry for all the puns. I got stuck on that train of thought.
(okay okay okay, I’m going home now folks. Tip your waitress).
While this is hysterical (aside from the damage done), I assume restaurants and bars located near rail road tracks have a much higher likelihood of being named something train related. Still, I think DeRailed is probably one of the less common names! (I always see “Tracks”).
