This NTSB reenactment of last year’s crash is difficult to watch, especially knowing the outcome. One detail I (and others) noticed was at the circuit prior to the collision, the Automatic Train Control briefly goes to 0 mph, then back to 55 as it travels toward the train it crashes into seconds later. Saw this first at unsuckdcmetro.
