Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The news coming out in the media is too confused and contradictory for me to write anything diary-length. I commented on the technical aspects of the accident on first news (when it was reported that lightning hit the train) here, and yesterday here. As a further comment, whatever was the real reason, this train control failure and the public management of the accident paint an even worse picture of recklessness than what I inferred from the 'overspeed' practice and the 380 km/h ambitions.
