  1. Okay but wait, how did this even happen?? Two opposing trains should never be on the same track.. I want to know what caused this mistake and how no one in the control stations noticed

  2. All those who had planned to be on that train but one way or another weren’t, are probably thanking god. But there’s people on there too. People think god only works one way and that leaves no explanation for the other part of life. The whole ‘it wasn’t my time’ thing applies to everyone- no one deserves to die from trauma like this. Idk, not a fan of religion anymore

  3. They could have shortened this episode and then added in what the NTSB findings were and what they made the rail companies do to fix the problem.

  4. After all these shows I ask myself what would I have done under the same circumstances. Also if I had I survived how would I have been able to assist others. What lesson did I learn from this. 1. Trying to move the man on the upper level was dangerous, he probably suffered a broken neck and moving him may have led to his death on impact or during rescue.

  5. The US rail system is so different. In the UK we don't have double-deckers presumably because we have low Victorian bridges. Additionally, we have cameras and sensors near enough every mile along the tracks to prevent stuff like this from happening. The biggest difference is the number of trains though. The US is so much bigger than the UK but you'd think there'd be a better railway system considering the cross country coaches are notoriously long.

  6. Ahhmm, couldn the traindriver just opened the doors on the first cars? Or maybe that would have made it more dangerous for the people just exit the train at that momment..?
