Today, September 22, is the 30th anniversary of Amtrak's worst accident; the Sunset Limited crashed into Bayou Canot near Mobile, Alabama. 47 people lost their lives due to a freak accident of a barge hitting a bridge in thick fog. The tugboat pilot was ill trained operating in fog. Sad day in Amtrak history. I can't believe its been 30 years. RIP to those lost.
