Description EN

On July 8, 2010, a train hauling 19 cars full of grain derailed and overturned just outside of downtown Waxhaw.  No one was hurt - but Hwy 75, the main artery through Waxhaw, was completely shut down.  The Waxhaw Volunteer Fire Company, CSX, police, local government and ordinary citizens worked together for days to clean up the mess and get the road opened.  That spirit of cooperation was captured and commemorated in the artwork that stands before you, appropriately titled "Getting Back on Track."  Actual pieces from the wreck were used in its construction.

To claim a find for this virtual cache, post a picture of yourself with the artwork - bonus points if you can also catch a train going by (this is a great spot for that, too).
