No. In the video, it says it was a low speed derailment.

How can you derail at a low speed?
A broken switch or something?

Either something on the tracks or the switches weren't put in place properly

I wouldn't. Derailments happen weather you want it or not, just like plane crashes. I think Amtrak does a pretty good job with their operations.

There was a derailment underground too I remember an N train had derailed once and it was one of the R160s that derailed.

I forgot if it was a collision or a derailment, but anyone remember; I believe it was a B train right before Dekalb Ave, this was probably a long while back when some of the forum members were still in the single digit years.

Another one, can't really say it was a derailment but kind of caused one?  The L train incident at Rockaway.
