A lot of impatient people play chicken and some accidents occur in blind curves or in mountaious areas crossings next to a tunnel.

When I see lights flashing and gates come down I take no chances whatsoever. There are circumstances of branch lines where no gates exist and trains move slow but I know the differences between that and main line trains which go extremely fast....

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

I have a newspapers.com subscription. I always see train/vehicle accidents and people walking getting hit by trains back in the day. How on earth does that happen?? Trains go slow. I'd be willing to bet that the majority are suicides.


I walk a pretty good stretch of rail when I walk to town or to the lake.  There is a significant portion of it that has water on either side.  If a train ever comes while I am on the tracks I am going for a swim.

You need to be careful walking down train tracks. There are still some shady folks that ride the rails.

Why do you think I walk the tracks?  I dare 'em to try something.  I carry and I have a massive Doberman. LOL

The rails are littered with discarded handbags.  I must not be the only lady who walks them.

I enjoy such references, read about incidents in the day it happened and what was going on. 1958 was a much different world than today and the infrastructure was different. That road  where that accident happened was the main road heading into the city from the South in 1958 and is a local road today...

Thank you for your concern.  I'm more afraid of the rail bridges that I have to cross than I am of the local meth heads.

You know how you all want to choke me at times.  My son needs to go a good school.  He's been like a man ... more than a man since he was 14.

My other son is good, but this one is special.
