KCBS (Channel 2 in LA) reported tonight (Tuesday) that the feds renacted the crash with two freight locos and one Metro engine, checked sight distances and such and found that the freight engineer had four seconds to respond, which he did, hitting the emergency braking button in two secs. The Metrolink engineeer never braked. He also blew throug the switch just downstream of the collision siite. The question is why? It will be interesting to see what the autoposy shows. Still, a very tragic and sobering event. BTW, the lady PR person for Metrolink, who announced to the press almost immediately after the crash, that it was their fault, got fired for speaking out of turn.
