A $100,000 reward is being offered to help find the person or persons that tampered with a train just before a collision and derailment.

On December 12 around midnight a person or persons tampered with a parked BNSF train’s air brake system causing a major derailment.

BNSF has provided the attached cell phone photographs of multiple people walking near the train tracks just before the collision and derailment.

BNSF is offering a reward in the amount of $100,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for tampering with the parked train.

There are two ways you can provide tip information. One is through the BNSF tip line, 1-800-832-5452 and the second is through Tulsa Metro Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS or text TIP918 to CRIMES.

Maynot is actually on to something. These arent the surveillance photos that were promised, but just undated cellphone photos of people walking along tracks (which does happen every day). The "vandalism" might be negligence and the RR is looking for a scapegoat.

Good luck. I wonder why they can't get more info from whoever took the pictures. Why would whoever took the pictures take the pictures in the first palace.
