catzilla: buckler: How in hell do you not hear an approaching train? The mechanical sounds are loud enough, but I'm sure the Engineer was blasting the horn like crazy. Maybe the guy was just stupid-obstinate. I hope the photo was worth it.The mechanical sounds are mostly to the sides and top. Loud pipes save lives.

Dudley_Nightsoil: When I was a kid one of my schoolmates was hit by a train and I happened by shortly after and it took me a second to realize why there were a half dozen sheets spread out near the tracks over about 50 yards. That and the look an the deputy's face has stuck with me ever since.
WorkingInParadise: I'm not sure how to feel about this. Was the photographer taking vertical videos?
erik-k: A train approached around a "blind" corner and was unable to stop in time to prevent the accident.I will never understand how it's possible to be so situationally unaware that you get hit by a train. I mean, the phrase "subtle as a freight train" exists for a reason. They aren't exactly sneaky ninjas... Nor do you have to take more than a few steps to escape their train-ey wrath.
Cubansaltyballs: What in the blue f*ck was he trying to photograph?
