Only 5 Days ’till First Train/Car Collision for New Orlando Commuter Rail

This Sun Rail commuter train in Orland has been operating for only five days. It has already had a crash. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/sunrail/os-sunrail-crash-truck-seminole-county-longwood-20140507,0,3348776.story

This Sun Rail commuter train in Orland has been operating for only five days. It has already had a crash.

As if on cue, as this blog has discussed the problem of commuter rail collisions around the country, the five day old “Sun Rail” commuter train in Orland has had its first crash. A trailer being towed by a truck was stranded on the tracks as a commuter rail train came barreling down the pike.  Thankfully, no one was hurt, but passengers were delayed two hours reaching their destination. Many of these passengers, all of whom were riding for free during a train opening promotion, expressed reservations about ever getting on the train again.  One said it was a “Sad day” in the history of the train and like a scene out of the “Twilight Zone”. 

This is likely to be the first of many such crashes in Orlando and will certainly be the case here if voters approve light rail in Pinellas.  The commuter rail in Orlando is a “heavy” train running on standard train tracks with gates that close when it crosses intersections. That won’t be the case here in Pinellas where the train tracks will run directly on street surfaces and cross 41 intersections without any plans for routine placement of gates to stop traffic.

The report on the crash is here: http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/sunrail/os-sunrail-crash-truck-seminole-county-longwood-20140507,0,3348776.story
