Passenger Car

Can Amtrac develop a "crumple" car to be towed between the loco and the first passenger car?

In looking at the horrific Chatsworth crash, I envisioned this idea: 1. develop a "crumple" car; a special car that is either empty and designed to crumple, or containing some sort of impact absorbing material. It doesn't have to be large or heavy but substantial enough to cushion an impact between the loco and passenger cars. 2. For this to be affective, always use "tow" configuration. Keep in mind what's most important: cost (a few more $ for fuel) or lives.

You know what....that is F'ng brilliant! Seriously!
