Back in the 60s my grandfather owned a concrete company. One day he got a phone call from the rail lines; one of his trucks (with 3 yards of wet cement) was hit by a train. They wanted him to pay for the damage to the locomotive, which was something like 15000$ back then. Everbody lost that one, lol.

Cell phones are bigger than a train while looking at them.
Perhaps that should be a campaign on a billboard.

Man, this brings back memories. I have a four track crossing by my house, and I saw something I never want to see on my way to school many years ago.

See, there is a siding right after the crossing, and if a train is adding or dropping cars at that point, where they stop is enough to set the gates down. Well, the gates were down because they were dropping cars off and people being stupid always go around the gates. I was second up at the light, with a good friend in front of me. I have no clue what he was thinking and he went around. Well with the train dropping cars, he couldn't see the other train coming from the blind side of the stopped train. 40 MPH. Ripped his cavalier pretty much in half, ended up severing off his left arm and because of how the roof on his car folded, literally crushed his head to about 4 inches thick. I was the first person to see him, and man, I still have dreams about it 6 years later. RIP Jim.

We have tracks out behind our work building, there are people that jump in front of trains there every couple years. Last two people were a girl in here 30's and then a couple weeks later her dad. Very sad
