Deadly Amtrak Train Derailment Under Investigation

Three people were killed and dozens injured when an Amtrak train suddenly derailed in Montana. The NTSB says the train was equipped with a safety feature to virtually prevent all derailments caused by human error. The rail had passed inspection days earlier, according to BNSF.

  4. I can’t believe Amtrak is so slow and still derails! It’s not like it is a high-speed train!

  5. Amtrak is the unwanted step-child of our government, which has given it just enough federal funding to SQUEAK by – and Amtrak has managed to do just that – SQUEAK BY – by cutting corners here and cutting corners there on maintenance, with the hope that they can "get by" until they receive the next year's paltry infusion of funding, which is BARELY enough for it to pay its employees and keep its trains running.

    I strongly believe in what is called "preventive maintenance" – which means train cars are inspected regularly for wear and tear, and worn items are REPAIRED and/or REPLACED, BEFORE, not AFTER, they FAIL. This wreck in rural Montana is the very kind of thing that PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE is designed to avoid.

    To be fair, no one has yet determined the TRUE cause of this derailment. It could well be that there was NOTHING wrong with this particular Amtrak train, and that this derailment and wreck was caused instead by a TRACK FAILURE.

    Amtrak does NOT own and maintain the tracks over which it runs its trains out here in Montana. The owner of this stretch of track is a freight-hauling railroad company, known as the BURLINGTON NORTHERN SANTA FE Corporation (aka BNSF). BNSF and AMTRAK have an AGREEMENT whereby AMTRAK has permission to operate its trains over BNSF's tracks.

    So, if this wreck turns out to have been caused by a TRACK FAILURE, rather than a FAILURE of MAINTENANCE on AMTRAK'S part, the responsibility for this wreck will be in BNSF's hands. None of this discussion should take our eyes off of the fact that AMTRAK has been STARVED for funding for literally DECADES (nearly FIFTY YEARS, in fact). This particular train consists of train cars which were built new in the late 1970s and early 1980s. They are approaching, or have already passed, FIFTY years of age. They are nearly completely worn out.

  6. Wow. That is very disturbing.

  7. Run em into the ground boys! Lack of inspection and repairs, mechanical failure! We'll never know the truth to many of our elected officials are stockholders…………

  8. Amtrak is the only passenger train system in the world that has never made a profit.
