It sounds to me, based on the limited information in these posts,
there's plenty of blame to go around. However, if they were hit by
the same train they cleared an hour earlier, the train crew take the
I would start calling several miles in advance for permission. The
posts didn't say if there was a siding within the 707. If they were
put into the hole for any length of time, it's easy to forget to call
for a restart. A stop at the Circle K for something is a possibility
but an hour seems excessive and you would still have to call for a
restart. Sounds like the train went into emergency, it would take the
Conductor a while to walk the train and the crew forgot about the 707.
Post it notes are wonderful thing!
The dispatch tapes would be definitive!
