2 dead as train carrying 147 people crashes into freight train in South Carolina

At least two people have died after a train carrying 147 people collided with a freight train in South Carolina. Emergency responders are attending the scene.

The Amtrak train, which was operating between New York and Miami, had 139 passengers and eight crew members on board.

Amtrak said there were “injuries reported” among those on board the passenger train but it is not yet clear how many. Lexington County Sheriff’s Department later revealed that at least two people had died and more than 50 people had been taken to hospital with injuries.

An awful lot of train incidents happening. Pure coincidence I'm sure.

nah lad amtrak is just breaking under its own weight
t. used to take amtrak trains all the time

every time i was on one i thought it would be my last, i've been on light rail systems in third world countries that were more stable and organized than amtrak.

california is the worst, they always overbook the trains so there's people sitting on the floors getting drunk and high, the bathrooms always smell like weed and actual shit, and it takes six hours to get from LA to San Diego. a car takes 4 if you time it correctly and GTFO of the 405 before traffic hits

I have a buddy that works BNSF. The horror stories are crazy. He's out every day driving the tracks and looking for problems. And unfortunately a lot of the rail needs replacing and updating to modern standards but no one wants to spend the money.

Passenger rail is a huge nuisance on freight lines tbh. It isn't really profitable, makes it harder for us to get work blocks, and forces us to use continuous welded rail so the passengers get a smoother ride, instead of bonded rail which would be bumpier (no effect on freight because no passengers) but would provide expansion/contraction tolerance that'd make broken rails far less common. The only reason companies like VIA or most of Amtrak exist is because of government mandate and subsidies. We do have a profitable passenger rail line here, called GO, but GO operates on separate tracks, is provincial, and is built up to match consumer demand rather than just following wherever the freights go (which is often not profitable for passenger rail). Our business would run a lot more smoothly without passenger trains on our track.

tl;dr get that shit off our tracks already we've got freight to ship

ALL RECENT TRAIN """ACCIDENTS""" ARE CAUSED BY SELF-DRIVING SOFTWARE

There's a lot of anti-train propaganda floating around these days, I wonder why the media seems so obsessed with reporting every train accident but not the constant tractor trailer accidents all over the place? Around a hundred people a day die in accidents on the highway in the US alone. Reminds me of how they'll always report if a white man kills a nigger but are completely silent on all the black-on-white crime. Still salty about Deutsche Reichsbahn shipping their hook-nosed brethren off to containment camps I guess. I shit you not I've heard kikes kvetching about MUH EVIL RAILROADS COMPLICIT IN THE SHOAH YOUR ENTIRE INDUSTRY IS GUILTY.

Actually the recent crashes were caused by PTC not being installed and conductors/engineers being the slacking subhuman monkeys that they are. I'm personally looking forward to the day we have autonomous locomotives and the only conductor vermin we have to put up with are yard bitches.

See you on the dole.

I work in S&C, so no. If anything the advent of automated trains will open up even more jobs for us since we'll be the ones handling their upkeep, troubleshooting, and repairs, just like we already handle LCS.

There is no reason for Amtrak to still exist. It is nothing but billions in squandered tax dollars that have never turned a profit.

Road Amtrak only a short distance, matter of about 300 miles, and felt a very strong jolt as rail was obvsiously not safe enough. What concerns me is that Amtrak has been in the headlines for train crashes in the last wekk or so.
Either the agenda is getting pushed that we need to rebuild our infrastructure, or obongo and deep state are using it as a tool to keep the niggers scared.

Nothing just seems to happen anymore. Usually always a large nose sticking out from behind the tree.

Passenger trains are complete anachronisms in the US. The only places they even start to make sense is in huge metropolitan areas. Amtrak uses the freight rail infrastructure which has been dying for decades and is only profitable for things shipped in massive bulk like pulpwood and coal. There is not enough money in the rail network to maintain it safely. It is too much cheaper to use surface trucking.
