from the article I quoted (not that NPR libfest)

The head of the National Transportation Safety Board said a switch on the tracks, which the freight hauler CSX Corp (CSX.O) owns and operates, was padlocked in a position that steered the Amtrak train onto a siding near South Carolina’s state capital Columbia, where it crashed into a stationary unoccupied CSX train.


I heard (but did not see) that the padlock should not have been on a switch to a frequently used siding AND it was not a CSX padlock (so many figure was placed there by someone who knew what they were doing and what the result would be - especially at the time in early morning )
