Amtrak Tragedy in Philadelphia - I was Once a Passenger
So far 7 are known dead in the Amtrak derailing in Philadelphia, with hundreds hurt. The "black box" has been recovered. We await the results. Here is an article about the Amtrak incident.
Some years back, I was a passenger from Virginia to the 30th Street station in Philadelphia, where I met a friend I would stay with who lived in New Jersey. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Here is the article (from cache) I wrote concerning that event. No one is totally protected or shielded from all unfortunate, even tragic events. Keeping that in mind, I'm still pretty impressed at travel on board Amtrak.
I do not intend such an isolated incident to keep me from being active in life's activities, including travel by rail aboard Amtrak railways. Do you feel the same?
