If only there was a way to track where a train could be. They're just so sneaky.

The most odd thing about this is that this was a roll out...a first trip for the new "High Speed" brightline train.

And not too long ago In the Pacific NW...the roll out for the new high speed ended in death and derailment.

It probably doesn't help that we're trying to do the cheapest high speed rail possible, unlike acting like a world leader and doing it right in the first place.

...and it's not even really high speed. The Florida train can only go 80MPH from the Miami to WPB route.
The French laugh in your general direction at your puny trains.

Three people killed and it isn't even in service yet.

" downtown Fort Lauderdale to downtown West Palm Beach to show off its high speed services a day before its Saturday introduction to the public"

Enough about the girl, how fast was it going?

Floridians don't get trains.

Is that really the most appropriate picture they could get?  For fark's sake.  Remind me to put a picture in my facebook profile labeled, "Give this to the media if I die."

Me too, but mine will be an inappropriate picture of just my breasts.

I thought conservatives weren't into gender equality.

Shows what I know. Thanks, Florida.

I've saved that as obituary.jpg on a few devices in case my brother is too busy to find a better picture.

If I didn't already know, the reboot shows me that I'm far from the only MST3K fan.

That said, I'm still glad to see fellow fans in the wild. And I'm shaking my tiny fist at you for beating me to this.

She never was very bright, judging by her arrest record.  That's just one.

"Lavell is the third woman to be killed by a Brightline train before the rail system officially opened to the public Saturday, according to the Sun Sentinel."

They never should have made those train tracks so tempting.

 The body says 31 but the face says 49.

Witnesses told police it appeared that the 31-year-old Boynton Beach woman was crossing the tracks in Boynton Beach after the guard rails were down and was on the tracks as the train approached.

To me, it sounds less like she was too stupid to know about trains and more like she was intentionally killing herself.
