This time its "CN Canada" on the busiest stretch of track in Canada with a "head-on collision". Mars oppose Neptune almost exact. 

The TO thread has a video news story of the mess. When Neptune is part of the aspect usually means "moments of mental unclarity

or distractions". One of these CN trains really fucked-up.

Word on the street is the the freight crew called for a 568(directional clearance and permission out onto the main), the RTC gave it to them after overriding the nag screen on his computer as the can train was in the block, I am guessing he assumed they had gone past the freight crew as why else would they call for a clearance. The freight crew lined the switch and shortly after the can train hit them at 38mph. I do not know the lay of the land in regards to the switch and track lay out, but first thing i thought of was they did'nt see anything coming down the main? Maybe a big curve?? Either way only 1 guy injured, its a miracle
