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.

I can't 100% confirm that the rumor is true, but there was just a post in a private Facebook group hinting that another P42 may have been painted into Phase II (#130). A picture was also included and it looks identical to #66 except for the number.

Whats not to believe? You are not suggesting that someone would deliberately doctor a photo, put it on the internet, and spread it around as fact when its total fantasy, are you? That would never happen. Ha.

Believe it. 130 is at Beech Grove for capital wreck repair and repainting. Should be out soon.

Thanks for the confirmation. I thought that it was probably true, but I have also seen people lie about things that are far harder to prove than simply photoshopping a locomotive number. This will obviously have no effect on the typical passenger's experience, but it is still a positive to have all the paint schemes covered for the railfans and long-time riders out there.

I'm still curious as to why this is in a thread dedicated to the damage of 66. Is it because they have the same paint job? If that is the case, why do we have separate thread for the units with Veteran's Logo?
