I have seen and read just about everything that has been posted on forums everywhere about this, plus have seen all the TV coverage here in the northwest. I have just two comments: No reflection on the original post, but boy, it didn't just "fall" off onto the highway, it was more like "flew" off. No track damage to be found. Second comment is the reaction of the railroad to cease operations on this new segment until PTC is installed. Why? Why not run passenger trains over it to provide familiarization for the crews? After this accident I doubt any other engineer would allow this to happen again. I guess common sense did actually die.
