RAIL DISASTER IN PUEBLO, COLORADO!

SERTC training Pueblo Colorado

Well, sorta. What you are seeing here is indeed a derailment, but it’s been staged. The facility, “SERTC” is located east of Pueblo, Colorado. They wanted a video to promote their training facility, so they contracted with a UK production company, who then hired me as director of photography and my Canon C300 to shoot it. Emergency responders come to this facility to train for rail disasters. It’s the only one like it in the world. “You get a rush of adrenaline when you are working with real cars, real spills, and real fires.”

 

I’ll say! I had a rush just shooting it. After the exercise pictured above, they lit three cars on fire and set the responders to put out the flames. I had never felt heat that hot.
