NHN derailment in Rochester

With their train split in two, the loaded, southbound NHN waits for release from the scene of the derailment. Four cars left the rails with these two being the most precariously positioned. Trumix hopper #304 is resting against the still flashing crossing signal on the opposite side of the car. I'm not sure if it's what kept the loaded hopper from going on it's side, but there was little else preventing these cars from tipping over.
