The fatal derailment of an Amtrak train south of Seattle Monday is likely to intensify scrutiny of the national passenger railroad company's safety record, which was already under the microscope following a series of fatal incidents.Just last month, the NTSB chairman issued a scathing critique of Amtrak's culture, saying a future breakdown was likely, and the board made nine safety recommendations.In that crash an Amtrak train struck a backhoe tractor on railroad tracks in Chester, Pennsylvania, killing two maintenance workers and injuring 41 .Amtrak named former Delta Air Lines Chief Executive Officer Anderson as co-CEO last summer.Zarembski cautioned against assigning blame for Monday's accident, noting that Amtrak does not own the track where the accident occurred.
