"Nico: You called this one correctly.  While the SMART GM did not identify where they were damaged his picture clearly showed major in transit damage by UP.  See my post today Nov 7."

"What are "C" cars?  Isn't it the case the SMART only has "A" cars?  All the trains that I've seen are either "A" cars back to back, or three "A" cars lashed together.  Right? Or is…"

"This is definitely the second fatality, and third serious accident.  Whether or not this was a second suicide probably won't be announced today. I believe this accident occurred some distance from a crossing, so quiet zone status…"
