A derailment at Rosedale, MD is affecting rail freight traffic in the area and could cause delays of up to 24-36 hours for shipments over that route. The chemical-carrying train collided with a garbage truck, derailed and exploded at a rail crossing near Baltimore, prompting the evacuation of a half-mile area on Tuesday, May 28th. Hazardous material was loaded on at least one of the rail cars. Freight may be re-routed where possible.
Odyssey will continue to monitor this situation.
