"Tell me that the people who are responsible..."

This photograph bothers me a lot.  Understanding the "rich history" of the City of Bellingham and BNSF would take weeks of work.  But whatever that history, a derailment into the middle of Boulevard Park or Harris Street Pier would be an unbelievable disaster. Actually, just having some park goers crushed on a pocket beach by a falling retaining wall would be disastrous as well.  The hydrostatic forces on this area can considerable during a storm surge.

We have already had one tragic rail death last year in this park.  Please tell me that the people who are responsible....
