Why can't they keep those damned things from sneaking up on people?

The main noises a train makes are insanely deep and travel for a decent distance. It always blows my mind when somebody gets run over by a train, they pretty much had to feel it coming, not just hear it, but feel the vibrations at that point.

"...sounded the horn extensively, slowed the train and did what they could to avoid striking her, authorities said."

Officer we tried to swerve, but this thing doesn't turn very well.

If you can feel the vibrations while listening to loud music it's maybe one second away. I think she died because she thought she would feel it more.

I had my headphones up LOUD on my last walk, and I heard the train coming when it was still three crossings away. Not to mention I am not a dumbass and always have a look both ways at the train crossing, just in case.

Scariest train thing I've personally seen? A disabled man in a wheelchair that was stuck on the railroad track. We got him unstuck in time, but the poor guy was in tears by the time we happened along. He didn't have much speech so I couldn't ask him how long he'd been stuck there before someone came, but I can't imagine how scared he must have been.

I live almost half a mile from a train and I can hear/feel that thing coming every time. It might be because the tracks around here are older than dirt, but I know it's coming way before it gets here.

I was on a train once that hit someone on a motorbike who was unsuccessful at trying to beat the train at a crossing. The person survived by getting bounced out of the way, though lets just say riding in flip flops is incredibly idiotic and leave it at that. The sound of the thud and the grinding brakes is something I never want to hear again.

I imagine that the driver of a train that hits someone has to be incredibly traumatised.

THIS




There is a blind-ish turn in my parking lot at work. The other day some woman who must have just come out of the gym was walking right in the middle of it with her headphones on. Almost drove right into her because she didn't hear me coming. Lucky I was going slow...


You are not safe if you can't hear what is going on around you people!

It is about damn time that our government put our best scientists to work on some way to predict where these ruthless killing machines are going to go. It is ridiculous that we have to hear about some poor innocent pedestrian being creamed by one every month.

Yes, and it is quite common. MY G-pa was an engineer on SP and he hit 11 in his career (43 years).
The fools and wanters didn't bother him. The rest  he had a hard time with.

All engineers know the deal. It's only a matter of time.

Personally, I don't understand how a person gets hit by a train unless they want to.

The Truckee Police Department would like to remind everyone that not only is it illegal to walk on or cross railroad tracks, it is dangerous," McGill said in the release.
While acknowledging that railroad tracks must be crossed frequently in communities they run through, McGill said that people should be aware they are private property.
"Certainly everybody does it every day," he said, "and we're not out there ticketing them. It's appropriate to cross at intersections and wherever roadways and sidewalks cross over, but on Truckee Thursdays and other events, people often cross in other places where it is illegal."

and they forgot to add the obvious--at least you would think the obvious--take the $%^*(($$ headphones off.

Acquaintance's highschool boyfriend was killed that way. He and his buddies were walking home from party along train tracks. They saw a train coming toward them head-on and moved over to the adjacent tracks. They were all hit from behind by the other train.

I used to live next to railroad tracks.  Its so loud that you literally  feel that shiat in your chest as they blast the horn.

For her to still not have heard it is simply bizarre to me.

Alonjar: For her to still not have heard it is simply bizarre to me


In all seriousness she was probably high as a kite.  Started walking on the tracks and just fixated on those two long lines that she was inside that stretched out forever...she had to just walk and see where they were taking her or she thought the rails were an actual physical barrier that she couldn't step over.

The noise and vibration of the train was just part of whatever environment she was experiencing at the time.
