We learned two main things from the National Transportation Safety Board's final press conference on the Amtrak crash which killed eight people Tuesday.
First, the NTSB interviewed the engineer of the train for an hour and a half, and gave him a positive report card.
NTSB spokesman Robert Sumwalt told reporters, "Our investigators found the engineer to be extremely cooperative. ... He demonstrated a very good working knowledge of the territory."
