(Washington, DC)  --  Today is day two of a two-day National Transportation Safety Board investigative hearing into last December's deadly DuPont Amtrak crash.  Yesterday, federal officials revealed the Amtrak engineer didn't have any experience operating the brand new charger locomotive before embarking on his first solo trip over the new Point Defiance Bypass route from Seattle to Portland.  Officials say the engineer only had 60 seconds to familiarize himself with the new locomotive's controls before departure.  Three passengers were killed and 62 were injured when the train flew off the tracks and onto I-5 after hitting a curve at over twice the speed limit.  Another eight people on I-5 were injured by the falling train.
