Time to get the engineer to look for a job at Amtrak
Too many things going on to bother listing them.

Trains don't "crash." They "wreck."

Yes it was a wreck... It is a really nice amusement park, Family owned for 90 years. Still free parking and free admission.
They do employ a lot of handicapped people to run the rides. It was just a unfortunate wreck that should have been avoided.
Here is a video of them putting a G-16 that derailed in 2013. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAdx65F1HJs

I had to log back on. It is rare to see such a bad wreck and the damage, so I was very sad but then that horse. I had to smile and even :lol: Somehow it put it back into perspective of horse sense saying "we coulda pulled those cars, phooey" great pics all. :)
