Well, I hate to say I told you so, but I knew this was going to happen and it did. 500 pounds of “fireworks grade” explosives stolen from a freight train. What is really weird is that this happened two days ago and I just found out about it today, 4.22.16. I’ll keep listening to see if this does anything to get rail security moving forward or we will, like normal, do some short term fixes and the go back to normal. I would like to applaud two railroads who recently had me talk about terrorism and railroads to their employees, that is the Northern Plains Railroad and Red River Valley and Western Railroad. They, at least, had the foresight to train their people to look at things differently. More to follow.
