nashua derailment of unit coal trains


I don't think I blogged about this earlier, even tho R. and I have been discussing it as he turns up articles about it. I commented to him right at the beginning, look at the color of the rails! And besides, it's probably owned by Pan Am. Sure enough, _owned by Pan Am_, and under a slow order of _10 mph_!

It'll take ten or twenty more years than it should to get this thing upgraded, largely because Pan Am is a recalcitrant bunch that doesn't play well with state governments.
