I have seen propane explosions from equipment running over. Usually just a big fireball vs. shattering explosion.. At night it would be impossible to stop a train. Miles and miles of trains.
Jan 20, Police found a one pound propane tank attached to a board with fuses taped to it along train tracks near Illinois Route 140.
The site was several miles from Edwardsville.
The Illinois Secretary of State Police Bomb Squad is leading the investigation.
