Amtrak Derailment…Again

03 Apr

Another Amtrak crash. This one caused by a piece of rail equipment being on the wrong track, which would be the fault of the Rail Operations Center for that area, which is in charge of making sure no two pieces of rail equipment are running on the same track, other than maintenance equipment during a repair. Two people have been reported killed.

This is a pic purported to be of the “Rail Backhoe” reported to be on the wrong track. It is a locomotive sized unit performing multiple functions including clearing debris.
