Kid threw the switch to shift the track, but I think the railcar was on its own. Like a runaway car type thing since the couplers dont have any bends or stress fractures from being with other cars, and there are no other gouges in the ground indicating more cars were involved.

[quote="Chad Vollmer"]Straightline wind/tornado?[/quote

bingo...

high winds blew the 2 cars down 200 ft of track, to a switch going the wrong way...

cars rolled down in the dirt...spilling all their corn...

cars are not about half demantled for clean up...
