The hard part is that the three people who could tell the most are not able to shed any light on anything now....That is my experience as well, the trains tend to accelerate pretty quickly. Whatever the cause is, i too am very curious as to how the loco lost its truck like that. Based on the photos 6444 obviously went through part of that building the one car was under the lower wooden looking roof of. Knowing that, i'm honesty not surprised about the fatalities in the cab. Something went very, very wrong for this all to happen.
I've been on many a train on the Oakville Sub that has departed Aldershot on Track 2 and been up to a pretty good speed by the time it reached King Road (on a straight move on Track #2)....
Next stop the square, journal square station next!
