My train derailed

Last week Mélanie and I travelled to Chicago from St. Louis, but because we would only be there for a day we took Megabus and Amtrak so we could travel and sleep. We took Megabus to Chicago leaving very early Friday and returned on Amtrak Saturday morning. Less than a mile from the St. Louis station our train ride started getting rougher. It quickly became apparent that the train had derailed, luckily the train was moving slowly so other than than the minute we thought it could be a crash, no one was hurt. I snapped into journalism mode and started making pictures and talking to people. In the end we found out only one car derailed, my car. Everyone on the train took it well, one elderly lady was unfazed and proudly said “I love Amtrak and I’ll keep riding.”
