Seattle to Portland Amtrak train derails — multiple fatalities

It is being reported there were at least six three fatalities in the wreck. This is the train we took to return home from visiting Kelly in Seattle when we lived in Portland. It is also the train we take to visit Kelly in Seattle now that we live in Centralia. When we drive back from Seattle, we always drive under the graffiti marked train trestle (overpass). We love to take the train. It was very sad this happened. We understood this one of the first trains on the new, faster route that had been opened.
