Need a new car? Union-Pacific train wreck on July 10th included several car carriers. Photo from FOX 13 Salt Lake City. Article at https://fox13now.com/2019/07/10/dozens-of-brand-new-cars-destroyed-in-spectacular-nevada-train-derailment/

I'm currently waiting to see when my car will get out of the shop and was reminded of this train wreck :-)

As a reminder, Bomb Shelter Radio will be dark (aka No Broadcast) on July 25th, 2019. Our next broadcast will be on August 1st, 2019 at 8PM US/Eastern Time. I hope you will be able to join us then!

Cheers,
Illya
