LOLOL!!!!!! Rolling on the floor here! It is a great shame you were never elected to the USA Senate, Amos. Your outraged soliloquies would leave even Everett Dirksen and Strom Thurmond mutely gasping for air, unable to respond in kind, silenced by sheer awe at your impassioned verbiage.
My friend Bryan Sutton (not the famous guitarist but another Bryan Sutton) tells me that the locals in Scotland ever after referred to the locomotive invoved in the disaster as "the diver", showing typical black humour about the matter. It was presently raised from the bottom of the river, cleaned up, and then returned to service, but some people were reluctant to ride on it after that for superstitious reasons.
