Never happened. I could have jumped off and taken a smoke break and then jumped back on the last car. Left Newark at about 8 a.m. and arrived in Pitt at midnight. With all the inconveniences of air travel these days, it sure would be nice to have an alternative. Unfortunately, Amtrak is not it.
    If it's 600-miles or less, just drive to your destination.

    Engineer likely untreated for mental disorder...attention deficit disorder...or bipolar disorder.

    With the first, he wouldn't have been watching properly. With the second, he would have felt invincible.

    Or, could have been the tractor driver with the problem.

    This is true since 25% of adults annually have a mental illness issue.

    The train should be listed as a Bully since it already has a history of death , maham . causing injurys so can only travel on a pre planned designated track. get off and it is destroyed.
    And it sneaks up on its prey because if heard they would not get in its way.
    No need to have the Governmet to look into the problem since they operate the same way.

    The train probably has Azzburners Syndrome. They just have a one-track mind. Lucky it wasn't the 1225 (2-8-4 Berkshire). It now has a bi-Polar Express diagnosis and could probably be elected to congress.

    that wasn't an "assault" tractor was it? I come across those on the black market every so often.

    maybe it was configured in such a way to be only for killing.

    The tires were permanently loaded and CNN reports the owner said he "pulled the trigger on it" when he bought it.
