Unread post by Jochs »

The CSX Grand Rapids was temporarily shut down on Monday to fix a washout in the right-of-way in St. Joseph.

I love how the paper quoted CSX saying "Safety is our number one priority" :lol:

I don't think the paper fully believes in the railroad :?

Holy crap that's closer to being gone then the washout they were worried about south of town last year. The engineering gang found it, I would think the last engineer thru would have seen it after going across it?

Maybe they looked at an annual report. In the 2017 report financial reporting starts on page one with James Foote's opening remarks. Safety statistics are back on page 47.

And how do you ASSUME what the paper FELT about safety first? Or is that something between the lines I didn't catch...?

I agree with the Doctor. I read nothing in the article that indicated the reporter felt that CSX was indifferent to the risk.

I assume the editor asked the reporter to insert a quote from the source to provide credibility to the story. If I recall correctly, that is called journalism.

Piles and piles of stone on the south side of the bridge by the signal.
