Film Unstoppable


Terry
 

I just saw the film "Unstoppable" and would recommend it to fellow
railway gunzels as being interesting and enjoyable

While the story is hyped up somewhat it is loosely based on an incident
involving CSX locomotive 888

There is an account of the CSX incident on
http://kohlin.com/CSX8888/z-final-report.htm
<http://kohlin.com/CSX8888/z-final-report.htm> and also on
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CSX_8888_incident
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CSX_8888_incident>

All in all it does show how easily simple mistakes can multiply into
potential disasters

Enjoy
