But Why

Oy if true.

Investigators of Tuesday's deadly Amtrak derailment say they are focusing on reports that the train was traveling more than twice the 50-mile-an-hour speed limit when it entered a sharp curve in Frankford.

I have no idea what driving a train is like, but this isn't some middle of the nowhere stretch. It's in the middle of the city. Can't imagine why someone would gun it in this area, with a known curve.
