Train Safety Delays -3

FILE - This Jan. 6, 2005 file photo, released by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) shows a train derailment where toxic chlorine gas leaked, killing nine people, in Graniteville, S.C. Despite a rash of deadly train crashes, the railroad industry's allies in Congress are trying to push back the deadline for installing technology to prevent the most catastrophic types of collisions to at least 2020, half a century after accident investigators first called for such safety measures.
