GOLDEN, Colo. — The Regional Transportation District's (RTD) W Line will be fully up and running Sunday for the first time since a derailment in March.
RTD said it will restore full service on the W Line at 3:32 a.m. Sunday.
W Line service was impacted when the first car of a light rail train derailed on March 11 at the Jefferson County Government Center - Golden Station. Two passengers had minor injuries, but investigators called the damage to RTD property "catastrophic."
RTD said restoring full service to the affected station required repair of an electrical pole foundation, replacement of the damaged support pole and adjustment of the overhead electrical system that provides power to the light rail vehicles.
RTD's investigation revealed the train's operator may have fallen asleep before it derailed. The agency's corrective action plan calls for implementing a "fatigue risk management program," adding "fatigue awareness" to training and recertification and evaluating the starting times and durations of shifts.
The fatigue awareness training will be implemented right away. The risk management program isn't set to be implemented until 2026.
