I found this out too. While you were posting other stuff I saw this and had to post it. This was the Auto train.

My prayers go out to all the people aboard. This is a horrific accident. The photos are terrible. 14 cars on their sides. And the Auto Train is a high-capacity, high-use train, a real family-trip thing.  Sad

I hope Jay Leno shuts his trap about this thing.

CNN is now saying six are dead, and 20 are critically injured. This is a terrible accident. 35 of 41 cars were derailed. I've never heard of a train accident that was quite that bad.
