Off topic, I know, but stop using Internet Explorer. It sucks. Mozilla Firefox is free and will underline the misspelled words for you to correct.

ALL railroad tracks should be nationalized, repaired, maintained and improved by the Feds. Than the Fed would lease the rails back to the railroads to operate their rolling stock on and that would help offset the Fed's expenses. Railroads have and always will be important to this country. You can transport heavier loads and cheaper by rail. We have already lost too many miles of track and there is no incentative for the current railoads to add or even upgrade the tracks they currently use. Oh Yes, it would also create a few jobs.

I am glad to read that there was no injuries here. All the posts are so serious and mudslinging. Let's try to lighten it up a bit. I wonder if anyone thought to bring the marshmallows and hotdogs to this gigantic weinie roast?

How do you know it was the tracks? Maybe vandalism, wheel bearing,etc. And we do not need the government to operate railroads. Look at Amtrack.

I use to be a brakeman for the Chessie System,therefore knowing that these cars- built to carry flammable material-meet and exceed safeguards set by all regulatory agencies (primarily, DOT). Oftentimes, it is human error that contributes to scenarios such as this, that is-preparation of the container (car) for transport.

Seriously? maybe you should work for any mainline railroad in this country, and then you would realize how much time, effort, and money these railroads put into maintaining their tracks every year. When you have vandalism, warped track from heat or cold, washed out crossings, bridges, etc. Trust me, they spend the money - and how do I Know this? Because I work for a contractor to the railroads, and we do a lot of the work for them, not to mention we have crews onsite at this very moment working to get this cleaned and the railroad back in service.
