The photo is from the Emporia Gazette(newspaper) photographer(a different photographer than in "Trains").

A BNSF coal train derailed at Parkville, MODuring April 1999 a loaded BNSF coal train derailed at Parkville, MO spilling tons of coal down main street and the coal cars smashed a few buildings down.
