Secrecy over September’s RTD R-Line derailment investigation ending

The Denver Gazette: After months of delay, the Colorado Public Utilities Commission Wednesday unanimously agreed to declassify some documents related to the second derailment of the Regional Transportation District’s R-Line light rail train in four years at the same Aurora intersection. 

Since the Sept. 21 derailment RTD officials have been tight-lipped offering no information about the cause, and little information about how to prevent another derailment has yet been publicly released.

At the PUC meeting Wednesday, all three commissioners agreed that at least some of the documents related to the derailment should be released.
