A BNSF crude oil train derailed yesterday near Doon, IA and leaked thousands of gallons of oil into the Rock River.

I think the article said something about flooding in the area. I wonder if MoW either missed something or hadn’t gotten there yet, and if the latter is the case, why was that train allowed to continue before an inspection took place?
If the Conductor is in charge of the train, then why is he promoted to Engineer?
