A postscript to Dave Lott’s history of the Mark Twain Zephyr! 

At least there is relevant precedent case law on the topic!

Too bad the lead locomotive wasn’t a U-boat!

I heard there were strong winds on the river that may have contributed.

A train hit a barge tied to the shore in Montrose on the K-Line last Saturday night derailing two locomotives and overturning several coal cars.  I have heard a story that the Mark Twain Zephyr once hit a barge somewhere on that line.  It sounds like someone not too bright on the river will be responsible for this.  Was this a frequent occurrence?
