Can a name be destiny? In the case of DeRailed, a bar at 1130 N. Grand Ave., it appears so. A Canadian Pacific railroad car tipped over on the adjacent tracks early Tuesday and crushed a corner of the metal storage shed at the back of the bar. Chief Hugh Anderson of the Charles City Police Department said the derailment occurred about 4 a.m. while crews were moving cars and changing hook-ups. “Kind of ironic that it derailed,” said Lori Eckenrod of Charles City, as she sat at the bar in DeRailed shortly before noon. “Kind of been the talk of the town and everywhere else, from what I heard.”
