THE SPHINX—–TRAINS

The  Editor:   What is going on with the trains, LL ?

Toot, Toot, Cat:  Things are really bizarre.  This one involved a stupid truck driver.  Witnesses say the truck driver tried to snake his way through a lowered crossing guard.

The South Carolina crash is a puzzle.  The freight train was pulled over on a side track and stopped.  The signal that directed the moving train was padlocked to direct traffic to the side track.   Oops it looks like human error or a terrorist attack.
