Default Dave Patch's Story on Toledo NS Collision

By Dave Patch, aka Toledopatch,
in yesterday's Toledo Blade:

"Although investigators say they may need several months to determine
why two Norfolk Southern freight trains collided in Millbury Friday
afternoon, they likely know which of the two was in the wrong place
when they reached the scene.

"The two trains collided just east of a set of track crossovers where
one of them should have changed tracks so the two trains could pass
each other."

"Given the location of the trains at the time of the collision,
parties familiar with railroad operations, speaking to The Blade on
condition of anonymity, said it is nearly certain that eastbound train
20E was the one that somehow ended up on the wrong track."
