Re: “Train derailment in Hoxie kills 2; homes evacuated

Interesting how so many rail fans and casual readers know about fatigue, cell phone habbits, and in cab activities of real crews. Nobody knows what happened yet. That's what investigations are for. Yes crews get fatigued, crews us cell phones when they shouldnt, dispatchers screw up, brakes can fail, signals fail, locomotives fail. 3 am doesn't mean anything to a railroad. We can get just as fatigued at 3 pm. We can be wide awake at 3am. You try working on call 24 7 365 with no predictability. Then make a fatigue statement. In other words let the investigation determine the cause, not uneducated opinions.
