At First, It was Just Another Day...

It was just another day on February 26 until 15:26, when Train 92 derailed west of Toronto resulting in the tragic death of three VIA Rail locomotive engineers. In my own 32-year career in Canada's railways, I have never experienced so much pain and sadness and, like my colleagues, so much helplessness in a position of so much authority.
