Just to update you on the story we told you about on Sunday, the NTSB gave a briefing on Monday regarding the derailed DC Metro train that caused the agency to pull 60% of the trains from service, finding that the train had actually “derailed at least three times that same day and was not pulled out of service until the lat derailment.”


“This could have been catastrophic”:

Apparently the train somehow righted itself after the first derailments:
