Excerpt
Excerpt: About 2:15 a.m., July 2, 1997, westbound Union Pacific Railroad (UP) freight train NP- 01, operating on a siding track, proceeded past a wayside stop signal at the end of the siding and collided with the side of eastbound UP freight train ME-29, which was operating on a mainline track on the UP railroad near Delia, Kansas. The NP-01 train engineer was killed, and the NP-01 train conductor sustained minor injuries. Based on its investigative findings, the National Transportation Safety Board determined that the engineer of the striking train probably fell asleep sometime after his train entered the siding. When the NP-01 engineer did not dim his train?s headlight, the train ME-29 operating crew responded by flashing their train?s headlight and repeatedly trying to contact him by radio. However, he did not respond at all to repeated radio calls and did not respond timely to the flashing headlight beam. He possibly awoke upon hearing the eastbound train?s horn sounding and dimmed his train lights in reaction to meeting an oncoming train, but was either not sufficiently alert or too startled or disoriented to realize that he needed to apply the brakes.
