Apparently Amrtrak has more blood on its hands this morning, after on of its DC bound trains struck and killed two CSX crewmen adjacent to its tracks approaching Union Station last night. Details:

This saddens all railroaders, as they were brothers, and/or sister employees to all railroaders

Sad story. Especially when the kid was only 14 years old, but he was playin' around the yard, and with full sized trains, ya never know...

 Had that happen twice, once when a guy ended up minus a leg and once when some guy ran into the side of the train.
