Brandon Bostian, Engineer In 2015 Deadly Philadelphia Amtrak 188 Derailment, Charged.
Amtrak cancelled service around Philadelphia for a week!
Ended up having to go to New York by Amtrak and then taking a Greyhound to Philadelphia. That actually turned out to be quite a fun trip.
But, Amtrak 188 and Brandon Bostian became etched into my life.
I had been wondering what would happen to him.
Read the story. Quite interesting. The ‘authorities’ were NOT going to press charges — willing to concede that it was an unfortunate accident. However, families of those affected had the option to insist. Neat.
