    Along with the MetroNorth derailment, picked up this report of a Southwestern freight train derailing in New Mexico, killing three. Not a good weekend to be an investigator. I can personally only hope those three souls didn't suffer...

    Had not heard about this accident. I wonder if they hit a rock fall, or slide? Sad. :(

    On a lighter note, notice the locomotive in the picture. Guess the newspaper doesn't know much about American trains.

    I noticed that too, John. It did kind of amaze me to see what looks like a British passenger steam picture attached to the story, but online editing doesn't seem to require much research lately sometimes...

    Too many who write these things wouldnt know a train if it came up behind them, and gave them a swift kick...
