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

From Google Maps sat view, looks like it happened at the south end of a siding and could be similar to a crash in CA that was captured on camera and is at YouTube. One train that was supposed to stop at a signal apparently ran through the signal. At 3 am this is likely a crew fatigue issue. Technology has not solved that problem yet. Most freight lines do not have control systems to stop a train in that situation automatically and require at least one alert crew member. Here's the CA crash video: http://youtu.be/j9_g1NuoT6s
