The correct name of the borough is 'The Bronx'. 'The' is actually part of the name.

  


The only thing you have to say about this terrible preventable tragedy is 'The Bronx' ?

This looks eerily similar to the train derailment depicted in the new hit television series "The Blacklist."

Surprised to read that know one has called it a terrorist attack.

I must say, they keep the underside of their carriages very orderly and clean. It's nice to see there are those who still take pride in their work.

The train thought it was ObamaCare.

It is already happened in UK after privatising at the time of thatcher !

  


I think you'll find that was in 1991 under John Major following 'EU Directive 91/440'. Maggie Thatcher had always opposed the privatisation of the railways.

I f you want to point the finger at least point it in the right direction.

Thanks RT for always bringing us as many details as you were able to source as short notice. Good solid & accurate reporting, rarely found in the US MSM.

Deepest condolences to those who lost loved ones and hope the injured are soon discharged with no lasting injuries.

As usual,when a private company does a job that belongs to the state,it is non the safety of the passenger that counts
but the profit it must make . So no maintenance and more working hours for the workers hence no safety ! It is already happened in UK after privatising at the time of thatcher !
