Here's a quick hit of what Road Warrior editors are reading.
Following Sunday's fatal derailment in the Bronx, Metro-North service on Wednesday was scheduled to resume at 98 percent service levels. The Federal Railroad Administration has issued a letter calling for mandatory safety retraining of Metro-North workers and a new and confidential safety reporting system, Bloomerberg News reports. And as the investigation continues, it will be without the input of the Association of Commuter Rail Employees, NPR reports. The union has been booted by investigators who cited a breach of confidentiality on the part of union leader Anthony Bottalico, who told media that train engineer William Rockefeller said he "was nodding off and caught himself too late."
Update: The Department Of Transportation's Federal Railroad Administration has also provided the letter to CNBC, in which it says "4 serious accidents in less than 7 months is simply unacceptable."
