A women that is fairly local was hit by a train on foot I believe, I have never understood these stories of people getting hit by trains, they dont just jump out of the bushes... come on

Im not making light of what happened I just do NOT understand how this happens, I dont even understand how people get hit by trains in vehicles that RUN and DRIVE! Let alone on foot. Rant

If you only have to bend over once to pick it up it's a good landing.

We used to walk on tracks to get to various places, some time they drive those thing backward and they just creep up on you. Freight trains usually only drive them backward for switching or unloading etc but AmTrak will drive backward in full speed, that become problem so much that they make Amtrack drive Forward instead, much more aerodynamic that way anyway.

Light train or a freight train? Lots of idiots try to beat the light rail transit when walking. Lots of near miss videos on youtube.

Looking straight on at a oncoming train, you cannot judge how fast it is really going. They are very dangerous.

This is one of my all time favorites:

If I was ever looking straight at a train coming at me I would get out of the way, people that get hit by trains in my book are a real piece of work

Flying Brian is right.

A lot of the kamikaze pilots missed the ship.

It all has something to do with how fast things happen at the last second.

Anyone who says it's a small world never tried to walk to Zimbabwe.

I love this post, i have always thought the same thing. How do you miss 10000 tonnes with lights and a loud a$s horn coming towards you.

I would rather be in a boat, with a drink on the rocks, then in the drink, with a boat on the rocks!

you dont really think those guys driving those trains see everything on their road/track.

Most of those guys run on the extras boards, in short they get up to or less then 6 hours sleep in a day. So most of the time, those guys are grinding it out, and running like robots.

But by any means, people should not be getting hit by trains, and 9 times out of ten it is there own damm fault.

How about those people that stop on the tracks waiting for the light to change.

Yeah, I wasted about 10,000 dollars of hard earned money traveling around the country on my own dime searching and applying for that perfect railroad job. I traveled to every east coast and mid west job hiring fair. There would be like 2 positions open, and 200 people would show up.

I guess the good lord has other things for me to do in this life, as I had to put that behind me. Personally, I think I'm a prime candidate for the job......

I even studied on my own how it all works, the building of trains, and all the signals.

What about the lady who was following her GPS? It told her to turn so she did, right into an incoming train. She did manage to get out of the car before it was hit. I don't remember when or where it was, wish that was on Youtube.

When I first got my GPS a few years back, I was driving through the suburbs of Houston TX, and had no idea where I was going, and at the last second the annoying ladys voice on the gps said turn right!!

I called that turn a nascar avacive maneuver.......

working on the railroad isnt all its cracked up to be. while yah, it can be a fun job when your switching cars in the yard and so on but working on the extra board on call 24-7 suuucks.
like brian said, most people on the extra board work with very little sleep making the room for error to happen. id work afternoons then drive 1.5 hrs to get home then get called right back out with a 2 hr call to days then midnights then afternoon again. it can go like that for months. and while the money is good your family and your health are not!! the RR is a job for a single man with nothing better to do with life than work!! The RR doesnt care that your tired and not physically or mentally ready for the next shift. ive nvr taken my engineers training but know enuff from doing it for 8 years that i can drive the train. the first time i did it the engineer said take over and he took my chair and fell asleep. i was like HOLY ****... i was scared as a mofo. one of the most intense things ive ever done lol. ive seen cars disapeer right in front of my train and then somehow pop out untouched on the other side of the road. Crazy i tell ya crazy!!!

The GPS accidents are funny, never even thought of that

by a train on foot
I didn't know trains had a foot.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?
