Well if these CSX guys knew what they were doing, this type of thing wouldn't happen. He probably didn't allow enough time for his entire trains brakes to release before he started notching out to number 8. With extensive experience like I have, this type of thing wouldn't have happened. You see these guys get behind the throttle and in a short period of time they think they know how to run a train. I can tell you from experience that it take skill to run a train, which takes lots of experience to master. Just my spin on things.
