A man died after being hit by a train in the 300 block of North Main Street in Goshen.(An aside: Sadly "if it bleeds it leads" doesn't work anymore with news. Two deaths and it took ether overnight or a police press release to get more details on accidents... shame.)
Goshen police were on the scene just before 1 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 5.
Authorities discovered James Pritchard, 30, of Goshen, deceased on the south side of the railroad tracks.
Police have indicated that no foul play is suspected in the incident.

They love the work they do to the point most if not all problem children show up there. It will be the last hold out for GE products on the Amtrak system this was straight from upper upper level Amtrak. I personally have yet to receive any classes on the new Yugos I mean ALC42s nor have any of my brother racoons in the E part of T&E or the folks at the shop. They will not just show up there will be a test train or 5 so Amtrak can be sure the cab signal, ACSES, and I-ETMS work as intended until it goes into revenue service, because it always happens, never fails. Plus they will need to train about fifty of us to start. On how to make it stop and go, troubleshooting issues and so forth.
