Looks like N&S has decided to use Ohio as a dumping ground for its worn out cars.

>Ohio

Kate's dad is in Ohio and a side job he has is rerailing train cars and fixing damaged trains. I am sure these big derailments are beyond his capacity but he definitely stays busy enough.

I was wondering:  is it because Ohio is such a crossroads for train traffic that so many trains derailed there (worn tracks)?

Yeah, OH & PA are the center of the old industrial rust belt and there is still a lot of heavy industry there.  Also, its geo-location makes it a major rail crossroads.
