EddyKilowatt: Anyone know if this was a high-speed train, or just an ordinary metro or commuter?There's kind of a raging debate in U.S. rail circles these days about the best safety practice for high speed railcars. The Federal Rail Agency is old-school and wants 'em built like tanks, or more accurately, like body-on-frame trucks... which makes them heavy, expensive, and slow. The other camp favors the lightweight, monocoque-with-crumple-zone approach that has worked well in passenger automobiles. This sad accident is likely to feed into the debate...
