FILE - This Oct. 1, 2016, file photo provided by the National Transportation Safety Board shows damage from a Sept. 29, 2016, commuter train crash that killed a woman and injured more than 100 people at the Hoboken Terminal in Hoboken, N.J. The deadly crash remains under investigation but questions have been raised about what role the lack of an automatic train control system, the engineer’s undiagnosed sleep apnea, and a bumping post that was more than 100 years old played in the accident.

FILE – This Oct. 1, 2016, file photo provided by the National Transportation Safety Board shows damage from a Sept. 29, 2016, commuter train crash that killed a woman and injured more than 100 people at the Hoboken Terminal in Hoboken, N.J. The track was equipped with a rusting steel-and-concrete barrier, called a bumper or bumping post, installed about 110 years ago. In contrast, Atlantic City Terminal is configured with newer bumping posts that use hydraulics for more shock absorption. (Chris O'Neil/National Transportation Safety Board via AP, File)
