Re: Amtrak Accident


We still don't have numbers beyond "several people killed and dozens injured" - we have been told that none of the dead were in the cars on the road.

No surprise that Trump's first tweet was a political one - using a tragedy as a reason to support his infrastructure bill.

Re: Amtrak Accident


The picture I saw looked horrible, with a train car dangling from the tracks.

I read that today "was the first day of expanded service on the Amtrak Cascades line, it was the train's inaugural run between Seattle and Portland." And that a "U.S. official told Reuters that "track obstruction" is seen as a possible cause."

Horrible.
