I took the video above Saturday afternoon. It’s of the scene of the Metro North derailment that took four lives early on the morning of December 1, 2013. At 10 seconds in, you can see the brush in which the train’s first four cars derailed (scheme below). At 20 seconds you can see the river. Do you notice all the garbage in the crash site? The heaped railroad ties, the downed trees and wreckage? Four people died there. One victim was a friend of mine. Dozens of others were seriously injured. I ride this train all the time, and every time we pass this mess I think it’s a disgrace. I can’t imagine how the families feel. Metro North should clean it up.
