Without public discussion, the board of the government agency overseeing the $2-billion Alameda Corridor project tentatively selected a venture headed by Tutor-Saliba Corp. to build the most critical part of the undertaking--a 10-mile stretch of below-ground-level railway between the county's ports and freight yards in downtown Los Angeles. Tutor-Saliba, a Sylmar-based construction industry giant, has successfully handled a number of major public works projects in the county and state.

The configuration of southbound Metrolink train 100, which had a locomotive pushing passenger cars from the rear rather pulling them from the front, may have contributed to the severity of Wednesday's deadly derailment, according to transportation safety experts. Trains pushed along the tracks generally have lighter, less sturdy passenger cars in front, which experts say have a greater chance of sustaining damage during a collision and are more likely to derail.
