>> Federal investigators saying Saturday they've interviewed the engineer of a New Jersey commuter train that smashed into Hoboken station. Thursday's crash left one woman dead and injured more than a hundred people. Officials from the National Transportation Safety Board in a statement saying that for now, they're not releasing details from their conversation with Thomas Gallagher, a 29 year veteran of the railway.

They'd previously been unable to interview him because of his injuries. The NTSB has now also checked the signal system and done a walking inspection of the track, finding few clues as they try to zero in on the cause. Authorities are working with the manufacturer of the black box recorders, only one of which has been recovered to download information on the exact speed of the train when it crashed.

They plan to remove the other after more debris is removed which will take time because of the extensive structural damage to the station.
