Willis, this sounds like to me like the buck is being passed over, and over, and over. A very "similar" situation exists today in Seattle, WA.
"The designers designed what they thought was correct," he said. "Siemens provided a switch they've probably provided to 10 other places. The builders built what was on the specifications. When you put it all together, it doesn't work.......
"Now whose responsibility is that?"
Based on the above line of thought, it would appear somebody is trying to cover somebody's butt, because Siemens builds, and sells, a particular model of switch does not mean it's applicable to every situation.
This is one time I would say sh.. does run uphill, and the Project Manager should have hung on to his day job.

And the trains themselves will only tolerate six inches of water.

When I came to San Angelo about 23 years ago,I had been travelling with the Air Force almost the same number of years. My youngest daughter was starting the 7th grade of school. There was a girl my daughters age that moved in down the street at the same time. She was also a transplant here,having moved in from Iowa. They became lifelong friends. They both had sons about the same age. The friends son was very hyper and hard to control in his early years--a handfull. He outgrew that and was a real nice kid. A real joy. He developed a rare cancer and it went into remission for a couple of years,but suddenly came back and no treatment was available. He died a few months ago, just weeks away from his 15th birthday. My sisters friend has a brother or possibly he is step brother as I had a hard time keeping all the kids sorted out. He too had a son about that age. Last week his son was walking near some train tracks near where he lived. He was wearing headsets and didn't hear the train and was killed.
