MARGE I'm giving you the opportunity to think about what you wrote and either delete the post or clean it up. This is an active thread and the Admins are going to wind up locking it. Will you do this please?

Do you think they'll take the opportunity to lengthen the siding so as to avoid this happening in the future?The news reports seem to imply that the work train was in the siding and the eastbound passenger train sideswept it when passing on the main. This seems more like a failure to clear the switch than too long of a train on the siding.
