    Lucky driver!

    Took him some time to exit the cab. Probably was changing his underwear.

    And that was a passenger train....what gives with the lights coming on and gates lowered after the accident?

    Growing up driving in country areas where no crossing protections exist one learns to always, always, always look both ways before crossing. Heck, I still do it out of habit even with protections for exactly this reason in the video. I can almost stop my truck on a dime in an emergency but not the train!

    I have a couple unprotected Crossings near me, but they always send someone ahead with flag and
    still only travel at maybe 20 MPH through.

    Only Train I ever almost got Hit By apparently was a Ghost train on a Ghost Track.

    I traveled over this track for almost 2 Years to Visit a Girlfriend in Ashland .one night after work.
    Always took Rt. 901.

    I can remember like it was yesterday Driving over the track Slowly looking out My Left window
    and seeing The Train ready to Hit Me.
    I gunned it, Hit The Breaks, and Sat there & lit & Smoked a Cigarette Right on the Road
    Before I Could Move on.

    I cannot find that Track Even on the 30's Aerial
    But as I said I can still Picture that Track , even the Surroundings there Like it was yesterday.

    I have to do Some Research This is Bugging me Now.

    Starting to think I was visiting someone else's Girlfriend

    Right or wrong, going fast or slow, warning signals or not,, a train is very unforgiving.
    I know, I worked on or around the tracks for 26 years.

    Interesting that the crossing gates go down after the train has passed rather than before. Looks like railroad liability to me. Glad my expected package is coming UPS!!

    I used to catfish a creek/river confluence near a train bridge. One night as a train was coming in the distance, which never had happened while i fished there, I thought to get up beside the bridge about chest level...just to experience something different.

    I don't know how fast this freight train was moving, maybe 45mph-ish, but I reached the area I wanted to stand moments before the train passed and the blast of air in passing sucked me towards the bridge and backwards down the rocky slope a bit. The sound was deafening and debris pelted my face causing me to turn away then abandon the idea. Power like that is to be respected for sure.

    And the train scared all the fish away too.

    I know what you mean about the suction. I was fishing in a big river (Hudson) from a tin boat and casting toward a railroad bridge that spanned a smaller freshwater tributary when a train came along. The place where the tributary met the Hudson is a known good spot for spring stripers. I cast again as the train was going by and the suction took my lure and line and hooked the train. Spooled in a couple of seconds on the biggest thing I ever hooked!! Lost the lure and line, luckily had an extra outfit on board and continued fishing but only caught a couple of shorts.
