Is it just me or is the text in that article unselectable?

This happened just down the block from the building I work in, and we were all looking out the windows down on the scene after it happened this afternoon, to try to figure out WTF was going on. There were more cops, paramedics, and firefighters milling around there this afternoon than at Ground Zero on 9/11. Those guys need a hobby or something, because this little incident certainly didn't merit that sort of response.

We call it Amtrak but some call it the train.

Yeah, being through Sac a few times, I can just visualize this.

King said the train was not damaged.

While I realize our general population is getting fatter, is any person really big enough to damage or derail a train?

Amtrak has nothing to do with light rail. Amtrak is a type of heavy rail.

That's part of the appeal of Sac Metro area though. I relocated here from SoCal about 25 years ago because it is so calm compared to other places I've lived yet it still has enough "big city" stuff to keep me happy. It's a balancing act I think Sac has pulled off quite well.

Glad they got dude out from under the light rail. I had heard a bit about it on the news earlier tonight but never saw the resolution. Had to cook dinner and do the evening chores so I kind of forgot about it. Homeless people get hit by the RT with a fair amount of regularity, but this is the first time I've heard of someone being pinned under one of the cars. Hope he'll be ok eventually.

Sacramento. My grandmother lives up there and I have to admit that summer evenings and early mornings are sweet. The 4x4's and "Tap out" stickers, not so much.

You take the good with the bad I guess. I grew up in the suburbs east of Sacramento. Pretty awesome childhood all things considered.

My grandmother is in Carmichael, maybe that's close to your home turf. But they have an excellent school district out that way one of my aunts worked for -- San Juan Unified. Their numbers are nationally ranked. You should be proud if that's your background.

Well it's really his own fault. As the ancient Tibetan philosophy states, "Don't start none, won't BE none."

At least the train was undamaged.

This thread has the most positive set of opinions about Sacto that I've heard in my entire life, and I lived there for six months.

I think it's just as fashionable to hate on Sacramento as it is to hate on Starbucks. People secretly like them but don't have the stones to admit it lest others make fun of them. I've lived here about 25 years now and my only gripe is that it's too hot in the summer and my allergies act up year round. So I stay indoors in the summer and take allergy meds. Easy peasy - and totally worth it.

Report mentioned that the train was a four-car train. Never mind that Sacramento RT never runs more than two car trains. Solid reporting there, Lou.

Your statement is not true at all. During commute hours, all the RT trains downtown are at least 4 cars long. I see them every day.

Well, they are two-section articulateds, so Lou saw four sections and, Walla-Walla, four cars. Of course, it was reported the guy fell between the first and second cars, so ... maths am hard. Poor Lou.

Ah, poop. I so do enjoy seeing Lou getting called out. Maybe he had something to do with the power distribution design, then? Shut down all three substations? Are there no section breaks?

My favorite is when a car broadsides the train. Happens a lot at 16th. There is also the annual hitting of the dude in the electric wheel chair at that stop.
