He knew the curve was "out there". But he didn't know EXACTLY where it was. If he had known EXACTLY where it was, then he probably wouldn't have operated his train into it at 79 MPH or however fast it was going.

I would think that, as a basic rule for engineers, if you don't know where you are, or if you're not sure where a 30 MPH curve is, slow your train down until you CAN ascertain all of that. A late train is better than a wrecked train.
