I was referring specifically to the driver not having insurance paperwork. But I don't disagree with anything you said.

Failure to have a updated copy of insurance, or a failure to have any insurance. One is a bad thing, the other is a oops.

Have they determine if he just did not have a copy of his current insurance or did he not have insurance.

Have they determine how long the gates were down? The photo show a freight train real close. Did the freight train activate the gates, but not block them? The Amtrak train was on the second track and view was block by the freight train.

Bridges that my dream, you still can get hit by a train from a bridge but you have to be really talented to do so.

I just saw a recent picture on Facebook, and this is actually no joke! They're currently having it repaired. Its windshields got fixed, it got a new snowplow, so it should return to service once it's rebuilt and inspected.

Looking at that photo nothing has changed. And why would they replace a plow first?? That is for sure one of the last things if not the last thing to get fixed. The ditch lights are still broken out and it looks like nothing has been touched.. You're getting your hopes up for no reason IMO.
