Local expert talks about train accidents

Steve Sweeney, Associate Editor for Trains Magazine, joined Bill Walsh on the CBS 58 News at 4 Wednesday to talk about the train derailment in Philadelphia that killed 8 people and injured at least 200 more. Sweeney talked about where the investigation goes from here, if there is pressure on engineers to break track speed limits to keep passenger trains on time, and if this accident should worry Milwaukee residents since highly flammable crude oil is going through the Fifth Ward on freight trains.
