PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- NEWS CENTER reporter Tim Goff contacted dozens of experts in the train industry, some with decades of experience designing and operating locomotives, and others with expertise investigating train accidents to compile insight and opinions into what could have caused the tragic train accident in Lac Megantic, Quebec that has claimed at least 13 lives. 

While many did not want to speak on the record for fear of upsetting friends in the industry or because their knowledge was limited to other types of equipment, most agreed that multiple things had to have happened in order for the train to break free and barrel into the small lakeside town in the early morning hours of Saturday July 6th.
