It will be interesting to see what the investigation turns up. It seems really odd that a qualified engineer could simply "forget" a 30 MPH speed restriction on an 80 MPH railroad! I remember riding with C&O crews in the fog in Michigan, and they didn't even miss blowing for a road crossing when they couldn't see the whistle posts!
