When I kept on hearing about the multiple closures of the Hatem (US 40) and Tydings (I95) bridges due to the high wind warning yesterday, I would have thought that someone would have contacted CSX about the situation  :facepalm:

Per discussions on FB pages from CSX employees, multiple people voiced their concerns about operating over the bridge, more than just the train crews.  Higher ups ignored and said run the trains anyway.  And they got the expected result.

Funny I just watched Deep Water Horizon.  Similar story, higher ups totally ignored the first line guys doing the work and possessing the knowledge.  All they care about is the days behind schedule.

I think I have a spare tanker that I can use to model it floating in a river.  :D

That link locked up my browser. Too busy loading an offer for a better interest rate on my mortgage.  :RUEffinKiddingMe:
