    CSX had a fatal wreck at Carlisle, OH early Saturday morning (2-17-2001). CSX autorack train Q228 rear-ended CSX loaded ore train K188.

    The power on Q228 was SD70MAC No. 700 ("Spirit of Cumberland") and AC4400W No. 256. The impact destroyed two hoppers on the K188, while both locomotives and one car of Q228 overturned.

    The crew of the Q228 included a pilot engineer, engineer and conductor. The 35-year old pilot engineer was killed and the other two crew members critically injured. The crew of K188 was not injured.

    For a full story, see the Cincinnati Enquirer story at:

    As a railroader, my prayers go out to the families of all those involved in this incident.

    Seeing a wreck like that makes me grateful for each day I live. I guess you never know when it will end. I can't even start to imagine the thoughts going through their heads when they saw what was coming. Prayers to the families and the victims.
