On my NJ Transit line this happens all the time. Really slows down the commute for us and usally scars most engineers for life.

/have talked to one or two of them and it really does screw them up in the head when you see it and can't stop in time

It happens a lot in the DC Metro area and I think it's usually the end of their career. I don't think think I could go back to work after something like this.

Hey if they offered a 50K bonus for everyone you took out with your train the "scarred for life" would quickly end., and the "So I waited just a second more to hit the brakes...and BAM 50K!

ginandbacon: I feel awful for the conductors in these situations. Can you imagine what that must be like?


Indeed.

Locally a guy committed suicide via train a couple of weeks ago. He laid down on the tracks and put his head in a position that guaranteed that the train would run over it. It wasn't just the conductor that had to deal with the aftermath, but there were two people that tried to get him off the tracks without success.

The post in the comments from the alleged cousin of the girl is enlightening. Apparently this happened because blacks think they deserve handouts, and therefore did not help the victim. (Have they learned nothing from 9/11)

My neighbor married a transit worker from Brooklyn who had hundreds of stories about seeing 'crispy critters' being scraped of by the 'pooper scooper'. Most of the time they were prostitutes who were strangled and tossed onto the third rail.

Self-inflicted. She'd just have bypassed the barrier to do the same thing. Those on a true mission to end their lives will find a way.

We're just talking reasonable restrictions here, we dodge the issue of suicide control all the time until something comes along to make us confront it.

Nobody needs that many different ways to take their life, if we put stronger restrictions and bans on suicide we can really cut down on the self-murder rate in the US.

The MTA doesn't have unlimited resources and most of us would rather have next train clocks throughout the system, a Second Avenue line, a 7-line extension, and other useful improvements rather than trying to retrofit a 100-year-old subway system -- that features cars with doors at different intervals running on the same line and stations that aren't all exactly the same -- with impossible to maintain doors that would save, suicides aside, about five lives a year.

How much would it cost to install railings in each subway, with gaps aligned with where the doors end up when the train stops? Is this even feasible? Do all of the trains have their doors in the same places? Can a conductor stop with enough precision to keep all the doors in front of the gates? You'd think they could rig it so that would automatically happen. There are only, what... 70 or 80 subway stations in NY? I feel like this wouldn't cost much more than $1 or 2M.

Tommy Moo: How much would it cost to install railings in each subway, with gaps aligned with where the doors end up when the train stops? Is this even feasible? Do all of the trains have their doors in the same places? Can a conductor stop with enough precision to keep all the doors in front of the gates? You'd think they could rig it so that would automatically happen. There are only, what... 70 or 80 subway stations in NY? I feel like this wouldn't cost much more than $1 or 2M. 100 or 200M.


FTFY

It's New York City, after all.

so the number are in, and like i had said, this happens way more than people realize. 54 people died on the tracks this year in the NYC subway.> (NY Daily News)

0Icky0: Daniels: that features cars with doors at different intervals running on the same line and stations that aren't all exactly the same

Oooh..didn't realize that.
That makes a huge difference then. Never mind.


Yeah, NYC subway was once several different 'private' lines that had very different design criteria (number of cars per train, length of cars, turning radius, etc), so each set of stations are different.

In addition, there are so many train cars in the system, it is never possible to replace them all at once, so you will always have different cars in the fleet at any one time (some cars are 40+ years old). Think of the golden gate bridge. It gets repainted something like every 7 years, and it takes 7 years to paint, so as soon as they finish the job, they go back to the start and go over again. There is a constant rotation, and over those 40 years, tech changes a lot. for example, the 'newer' cars in the system did away with many of the conductor booths, which changed the door locations (they used to be offset from each other side to side, now they align right across, but older off-set door cars are still used as well).

Gyrfalcon: Greywar: Hey if they offered a 50K bonus for everyone you took out with your train the "scarred for life" would quickly end., and the "So I waited just a second more to hit the brakes...and BAM 50K! She almost made it though...." would start. Call it a "trauma fund" to "assist conductors in dealing with trauma".

I'm f*cking scarred for life after reading that story. If that's what passes for journalism now, there's going to be a mass shooting at the nearest newspaper office. Then someone can report that they all dyed.


This name seems familiar.

simplicimus: 7 line extension to where?

11th Ave - Hudson Yards/Javits Center. The MTA has already scrapped a new station at 42nd & 10th due to cost overruns. I'd rather them not scrap the whole project for unmaintainable doors.

moothemagiccow: Buy a gun, go home and shoot yourself. You'll inconvenience a few cops and the coroner, but it's the best we can do until suicide booths are made available.


good luck getting the permits to buy a gun in ny, especially nyc. if they get it illegally and end up surviving, they'll face a mandatory minimum of 3 years. easier to tie some weight to yourself and jump off major bridge that crosses a body of water.

Well, that would be useful. But somehow I doubt that we currently can reproduce what was done 100+ years ago.
