Sunset Limited 10/09/95
The Sunset Limited train #1 derailed on 10/09/95 at 1:30am in the middle of the desert on what is now the 
seldom used Phoenix Line of track. The tracks had been sabotaged by removing a
section of track but keeping the circuit connected by wires. This derailment has never
been solved. One Amtrak employee died.
