I`m trying to compare a loaded tractor-trailer`s backing his d.o.t. bumper into a railroad track while turning around illegaly toa truck jacknifing in the middle of the road. Neither should happen and if anyone in my CONVOY does it I``ll kick them out.

Hey dipshit, it doesn't matter if this driver backed into the track or not. If CSX's shitty track, that is supposed to support a train that weighs thousands of tons, is so fragile that a truck backing into it can damage it enough to cause a train to derail, especially in the EXACT same spot as the derailment frrom several years ago, then that's negligence on CSX's part. No iis , ands or buts about it. What's really pathetic is how they even tried to blame it on a "mystery truck driver", what a joke! I wonder how much they paid off those "witnesses" to come up with that sorry-ass story? CSX - "It wasn't us, it was the one armed man!"...Lmao! Classic!

This truck backed 30 feet OFF the State maintained roadway and hit a train track that has been there for YEARS. Know what you are talking about before you open your mouth. You seldom think before you type.

That`s DIPSTICK to you BOY>. Do you know the damage an eighty thousand ponnd truck can do with it`s hanging down d.o.t. bumper at even ten miles an hour? I drive a truck 48 years so I wouldn`t take up for the railroad but we can`t let people damage transit tracks. What if the tracks were inspected in the a.m. and a similar incident happened with a passenger train and hundreds of people were killed? Try to keep your posts and comments limited to something you know something about!

Considering that one truck hit the tracks,and another one jack-knifed while attempting to re-route at this location,then I would say that the problem is one that CSX should claim responsibility for.And since lenny's frame of thinking seems to reflect that of the grand jury,then calling him an idiot seems to be neither accurate,nor called for.And the thirty feet you're mentioning as if it were really some great distance,isn't really all that much when you're attempting to re-route a fifty-two foot trailer.Anyone acting as if these problems are the fault of truck drivers,and not CSX,clearly isn't doing any thinking themself.

So,your elite group of drivers could handle these problems differently huh??? I really wish I had time at the moment to explain why you are a nearsighted,simple minded moron,but I suppose I'll have to keep you guessing until later on in the evening.

No partner,I don't suppose that you personally offend me.And I agree that I shouldn't of took that strong of an approach in disputing your point,(it was early,,,head wasn't clear).I apologize.My point to the matter is simply that if problems consistantly occur in an isolated area involving big trucks and railroad trax,,,,then the engineering design of the railroad tracks,(and/or roadway),should be adjusted to accomadate the human error part of the equation,not vice-versa.I personally believe that with the amount of proffit that CSX clears,as well as how much they displace everyone of our lives everyday,then they owe us a little better than what they have been giving.Burning chemicals off for three days in our neighborhood,and then apologizing with a hundred bucks was rather insulting to me.And that's why I didn't accept it.I don't really blame CSX for the Salt River derailment though.When a clearance sign reads thirteen-foot eight inches of clearance while driving under a rail-road tressle,one depends on that little tidbit of info if he drives a big truck.If the city comes along and adds five inches of pavement to the existing road,but doesn't change the sign to reflect that,then it really isn't Waste Management's fault either.

I was just at the Fiscal court meeting with State Reps on Monday and they were talking about the roads. Bullitt County admitted to having a lot of horrible roads and also admitted they did not have the funds to improve them either. It is the RR's responsibility to maintain the road so many feet from the track because it is considered their property. It was my understanding that the incident was caused by a variety of factors, no matter where the finger pointing ends someone is going to have to foot the bill.
