The Amtrak 188 train derailment outside of Philadelphia on May 12, 2015 had an impact on us — directly.

We had tickets to go to Philadelphia on May 14, 2015 — 2 days later — to pick up my Jaguar XJ8.

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.
