As of this AM, evidently the NTSB folks are at site. They have habits of making informed comments. So it is fairly apparent there questions that AMTK 501 into the curved approach to the bridge, much too quick. Where the "RS" or "SR" order controlling the movement to 30 MPH?
Also, the wreckage of equipment raises questions of its integrity?

Questions of equipment integrity should be answered in light of the fact that this was a TALGO train.

Yep, looks considerable tore up, BUT apparently 3 (last count I saw) killed out around 80 (pax and crew) on board, so looks as if not many crushed or thrown out (though fire chief indicated they used Jaws of Life and air chisels a lot to get people out).
