Firefighters release photos inside derailed commuter train in California


PLEASANTON (KRON) — Alameda County firefighters have released new photos inside the derailed ACE train, where nine people were injured Monday night.

ACE commuter trains are up and running since Tuesday morning, after a train with 200 people on board derailed and plunged into a creek near Sunol.

Everyone survived, which emergency officials called a miracle.

KRON 4’s Will Tran spent the morning at the Pleasanton station to see if people were nervous to ride the trains again after such a terrifying accident.

Tran said commuters aren’t scared, but they’re actually relieved that the trains are running again.

One man even told Tran that the best time to ride a train is in the days following the accident, because “everybody’s extra careful and paying close attention.”

The train derailed due to a mudslide that was caused by El Nino-driven storms, according to officials. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
