  1. My father and paternal grandfather both worked for the old B&LE (If I had any practical sense, I’d have joined them.). Unfortunately, the first budget companies cut seems to be Maintenance. If NS wants fewer derailments, then (1) railcar wheels must be checked; (2) engineers who disregard signal warnings must be fired; (3) the signal system and its inspectors must be prioritized; (4) C-suite execs must reconsider a regulatory structure where the Secretary of Transportation (not just Mayor Pete, but anyone else) could be replaced by a robot–with no change in outcomes.
