The Norfolk Southern Derailment Catastrophe: Through The Eyes Of Maintenance

The Catastrophic train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, on Feb 3, Cost $1,000,000,000 and counting. Within days, Norfolk Southern had a solution to this problem. They wanted to add more hot box sensors to the track. Jumping to conclusions leads to solutions that don't work (but they do take pressure off the company).

Joel will review what we know about the accident. He will delve into practices and historical precedents that made this accident possible and probable. And look at these issues with Maintenance and Reliability eyes! This talk is not a conversation about negligence. It is a conversation about the logical and real-world consequences of decisions made.
