  • Drylok™ Dry-Disconnect couplers from OPW Engineered Systems play a critical role in averting a train-derailment disaster

    Dec 18, 2014
    It was a disaster that was going to happen and the only thing still in doubt was just how bad it would end up being. Early on the morning of Nov. 26, 2007, a freight train was heading west on the Kansas City Southern Railroad near the small town of Choudrant, LA, a stone’s throw from Ruston in the north-central portion of the state. Sometime around 4 a.m., the train derailed with 10 rail cars leaving the track. Of the cars that derailed, five contained hazardous materials and two of those overturned and slid down an embankment, coming to rest scant feet from U.S. Highway 80, the road that parallels the tracks. These two tank cars were ultimately damaged beyond repair and taken out of service due to the severe damage.
