I have issues with the reporting of this $600M settlement by any of a number of media outlets - including The Times - depicting the "controlled burn" dictated by environmental agencies, implying to lay readers that such was a direct result of the derailment incident.

The derailment itself did not result in the ignition of any combustible lading on the train. I am not any kind of environmental engineer to pass judgment as to whether the controlled burn at the scene was the correct approach to remove the HAZMAT.

But as a former railroad employee of eleven years standing, an investor, and a follower of industry affairs, I simply must note that circulating photos of the controlled burn with reporting of the class action settlement, is simply irresponsible journalism.

Norfolk Southern donates historic train depot, milestone in village’s recovery

EAST PALESTINE, Ohio (WKBN) – Norfolk Southern officially handed East Palestine the keys to a historic train depot on Thursday.
