An engineer of ADIF, which acknowledged not the exact circumstances of the accident, explained on Wednesday that it is unlikely that a train derailed just speeding and although this circumstance increased the severity of the incident, there must have been some other cause concurring in or route the machine to be come out.

  1. When “they” announce the “findings of the enquiry” it will read something like: The accident was caused by human error ie excessive speed”.

    Colour me islamophobic, but I will not believe it.

    Police: More violence hits Iraq with 23 dead in shootings, explosion (CNN, July 25, 2013)
    “Violence continued to rock Iraq on Wednesday, killing at least 23 people and injuring another 22 in shootings and explosions around the volatile Middle Eastern nation, according to police.

    The day’s deadliest attack happened Wednesday evening on a highway near the town of Sulaiman Bek, about 170 kilometers (105 miles) north of Baghdad in the predominantly Sunni Muslim province of Salaheddin.

    There, at least 12 truck drivers were killed and three others wounded when gunmen attacked their vehicles, police from nearby Tikrit said.

    On Wednesday morning, gunmen ambushed a security checkpoint about 30 kilometers (about 19 miles) north of Mosul, killing seven federal police officials and wounding three others…”

  3. Someone mentioned a hearing a blast. Maybe that was something or maybe that as the cars crunching as they piled up or came of the rails and struck the ground.

    Just because the train was going too fast does not necessarily mean that it was operator error. If the trains are like planes and many cars today they could be hacked.

    what we need are more cameras. People with their own cameras would have proof that would be harder for the government to manipulate.

    Chances are though that it was the operator.

    But still why would he speed if he was familiar with the track? Over confident because of familiarity? Inattentive? In a hurry?

  4. Thank you Vlad, I thought the curve wasn’t sharp enough to derail the train.

    Yes the explosion could have been the cars colliding, but the witness said she heard the explosion before the wreck. Watch is Paris Burning to see how this was done in WWII.
