In the Press

Jim was interviewed by Gretchen Carlson on Fox News' The Real Story on May 18, 2015 about the implications of the foreign object on the Philadelphia Amtrak train crash and the potential for the railroad engineer to be confused as to his geographical position on the tracks.

Positive Train Control in the Northeast Corridor might have prevented this accident from happening.  Congress has required the railroads to implement it by the end of this year but there is a movement to push the deadline back for another five years.

Jim is quoted by Gina Passarella on the $200 million damage cap imposed on a single railroad accident by the Amtrak Reform and and Accountability Act of 1997.  Almost 20 years old, it hasn't been adjusted for inflation yet.
