Stuxnet-induced crash? Amtrak train accelerated over 30 mph in 65 seconds, brakes only slowed it 4 mph [No proof–but someone has to ask. Any engineers 'on board?' –Lori Price, | 14 May 2015 | Today, we read: NTSB: Amtrak Train Accelerated 30 MPH Within About 1 Minute Before Wreck –In a period of just over a minute, an Amtrak train accelerated from 70 mph to more than 100 mph before it skipped the tracks and crashed in Philadelphia this week, according to the National Transportation Safety Board. The NTSB has also reviewed video from a forward-facing video recorder, which showed that 65 seconds before the recording cut off at the time of the crash, the speed was above 70 mph. The speed accelerated above 80 mph within 22 seconds, 90 mph within another 12 seconds, and 100 mph within another 15 seconds. The speed topped out at 106 mph as it entered the curve – where the speed limit drops to 50 mph, NTSB member Robert Sumwalt said earlier. He could not say whether the engineer manually accelerated the train or whether it was automated. Sumwalt said the engineer applied the emergency brakes moments before the crash but slowed the train to only 102 mph by the time the locomotive's black box stopped recording data.
