The news story said this occurred on Norfolk Southern near Six Mile Bridge east if Lynchburg. I thought NS was gone from this area about fifty years ago.  CSX is there.   Right?

Note reporter Ida Domingo's very elegant phrase, *the train's emergency whistle was engaged* ...

More highly informed **journalism** from the same fine folks who call railroads **train companies,**  who call the freight hauled by railroads **cargo,** who call electrical transmission lines  **power cables,** and such-like ill-informed palaver, and who are generally unable to match the case, number and gender of a pronoun to its antecedent noun.

Don't let your grandchildren major in **journalism**...  HA!
