The train table at the auto show was derailed Saturday in Atlanta, Georgia, the latest example of the growing problem of train derailments at auto shows.
A train train is seen at the train table during a preview of the 2016 Chicago Auto Show in Chicago, Illinois, on Friday, Sept. 22, 2016.
The train derailment occurred at the Train and Carousel carousel.

Last year, President Donald Trump signed an executive order requiring automakers to adopt “standards for train safety and accessibility.”
While the Trump administration has been working to reduce the number of train crashes, the train derailings have come at a time when many auto shows are experiencing unprecedented attendance and demand.
The auto show, which is typically one of the most crowded in the country, is expected to draw an estimated 25 million people.
“We want to do everything we can to make the show the safest event it can be,” John Donahoe, president and CEO of the National Association of Railroad Dealers, said on Thursday.
In a statement to ABC News, the National Safety Council, which represents major automakers, said the train accident was an “unprecedented” incident.
On Thursday, the NSC said it is “looking into the cause of the derailage and is working closely with the Atlanta Fire Department to find the cause.”
