Puebla, Mexico (May 08, 2018) - Train robbers caused the derailment of a train when it rounded near the Municipality of Acultzingo, Veracruz.

During the early morning of this Tuesday, it was reported that the Ferrosur locomotive with machine number 4713 was purposely derailed near Puebla.

It was reported that a group of train robbers removed parts of the railway to cause the derailment.

Subsequently, the thieves made off with the cargo that the hopper cars were carrying.

The incident was reported to the Public Security corporations, and elements of the Federal Police (PF) arrived to the site to provide security and guard the area.

The area remains under surveillance waiting for the Ferrosu staff to begin work on getting the four hopper cars that were tipped over back in order.

So far the authorities do not report people injured or detained.

    4. There have been some suspicious train derailments on the US, some suspect hacker interference with the controllers and more mayhem is expected, Mexico has no saving graces.

    2. Intermodal trains carry the stuff your talking about. Regular freight, like the one in the picture, carrys mostly garbage (Grain,Recycled paper/cans/cardboard)
      All the good/valuable things are intermodal- They got into one in chicago about 6 months ago and got a bunch of guns that were being shipped from the east coast- Its not easy finding out which container has the good stuff though

  4. So I take it that while the cars were getting looted, the train conductor saw everything? So why not question him?

    1. its the criminals that caused the train to derail, not the government. The devil sold crack, derailling a train is a major thing. Going to take hours to repair, and thoses wierdos will be around to rob and kill the workers.

    2. Criminals are doing as they please because the government cant do its job of protecting business and the people.
