Too much white, not enough grey/black.

Being in NJ, this improved the aesthetics of the train, the paint truck, and the surrounding state.

That would have been so much funnier if the paint were red.

This reminds me of the time a boat carrying purple paint hit a boat carrying red paint. Survivors were marooned for weeks.

Looks like the train was being pushed by one of their GP40-2's which means the engineer smashed into it while in the cab car..

As you can see, cars would be, and typically are, dragged in condensed form for 1/4 mile.  Yet still, people drive around the barriers.  Guess it's just Darwin.

At least the truck wasn't filled with poop. Or chickens. That would be worse.

Why don't they look?

The Hedgehog is in the hospital, and a train is covered in a sticky white substance. Connect the dots, sheople! It's a coverup!

Because they don't stop and look, they just shoot around the barriers in one of those plastic rug-rat haulers.

On my way to work earlier this year, I had to cross a trainline that was fairly busy with both commuter and fright trains.  Like to the tune of, almost every time I go to the RRxing, I would have to stop.

There were times when the gates would apparently malfunction, and just stay down even though there was no train coming.

More than once, I saw people get annoyed and navigate through the gates to the other side.  Then like, 2 seconds later, a commuter train appears seemingly out of nowhere.

That is some scary shiat!!  I can't believe I never saw anyone get smashed to bits!

what gallery is going to display it first?

Thanks for locating that accident, Mr Reporter. The rail line only crosses a couple dozen streets in Little Falls.

/appears to be the crossing over by Sun Ray, if google correctly located the food place mentioned in the article

Oh yeah. And a good thing it rained heavily last night to wash all that into the river. The water must be white all the way out to Fort Lee.

This is about 1/4 a mile from my office building.  It's very difficult to see down those tracks at that crossing unless your already in the path of the train.

The earlier articles pinpointed it at the Main St. crossing. Looking at Google Maps, there's a turn either before or after it (depending on which way the truck was traveling before it got splooshed) that makes it, to my mind, even worse. (Or, to be contrarian, if that turn hadn't been there, he would have been able to go faster and make it through, so let's straighten out that curve!)

That's what I figured. That crossing is a bit awkward and probably has more accidents than others, but not really dangerous. Unless you go around the barriers when a train is approaching.

An article yesterday said he couldn't make a turn and was backing up.  He backed onto the tracks and sploosh.

Every day, I ride Comet V trains to/from Hoboken, often pushed/pulled by a GP40-2 locomotive, and am getting a kick out of these replies.

Yea this improved the look of the train indeed.  The surrounding landscape? not so much.  There is nothing that can improve the look of NJ near NYC.

That said NJ has some pretty nice looking spots around the Princeton Area.

I was thinkin' more earth tones... Reds, blues, greens. This is way too pastel.

Meh...that train looks like a lot of cars around this neck of the woods here in Southeastern Virginia.

Yep, and the Cape May area, too, but that's not going to stop me from making jokes about New Jersey.

The area around NYC? It's like looking down the ass-crack of America.

The picture of her actually strapped up and painting appears to almost be nsfw, so I'll just leave this here instead:
