CMON man! This is ATS. Look deeper! That refuse truck was full?, half full?, you get the picture. My garbage man came early this Thurs. Morning.
It's a weekly pickup, and I can darn near set my clock by his schedule.
Now that train was a "CHARTERED", EXCURSION job. So it wasn't on any published schedule.
Back in the First Cold War days, the Greenbrier was the Gov't's panic palace, in case of a nuclear attack. So do you think that the Russkies would
have waited for a train schedule before they unleashed nuclear hell onto Wash. D.C.??? And what really got me was how in Hades, would our INTEL (
I.C. ), let a stray vehicle block the main escape route, and demolish what was left of our Nat'l Gov't, in a train wreck.
But those refuse collectors were on some kind of schedule. So, how many times had they snaked their way through that crossing?? But wait, there
wasn't any scheduled trains at that hour, since this was a non scheduled excursion run. So now it gets serious. How many spurious times has that
crossing been blocked for that garbage truck, with no trains involved.
Did they become complacent, and jump that closed crossing so that they wouldn't fall behind their own refuse collection schedule?? It's hard to ask
that truck driver, as he was killed. My take away is that those fellows in his cab, were the guys picking up and dumping garbage cans along this
route. I also doubt that the loco hit the truck, doing 70 mph. I think that the damage would have been as bad as from the 502, Du Pont, Wash.
trainwreck, from a few weeks ago.
So did our Deep State just send one Gawdawful warning to the House Repubs, about their voting to release Nunes's memo?? If this set of rails, was and
still is, the main line for a retreat from Wash. D.C., to the bunkers under the Greenbrier, then every possible scenario has been worked out, to
prevent exactly what just happened.
Jimmy'in a few fake flashing lights at that crossing, plus watching that scheduled garbage truck repeatedly cross over it, gives some bad actors, the
window to fix the train's departure, at exactly the right minute, in order to get to that crossing at the same moment, as that truck would be snaking
through those guards.
Did that deceased truck driver just say, enough, I'm going across this blanketey blank crossing, after sitting in front of it, picking his nose, over
the last several times?? He was on the clock, and trying to complete his route, ON SCHEDULE. OTOH, That excursion AMTRACK train, just got there,
when it got there.
However, someone at the Wash. D.C. end had to have given the green light to this AMTRAK engineer, to start his EXCURSION train run to the
