Christmastime is often when people unite in marriage. Lately, there have been many couples -- even in winter -- who have had their pictures taken on or near tracks. That is an extremely dangerous practice.
Just today, there was a fatality near Amarillo. I just heard from one of the crewman on that train. The person was standing on the tracks shooting at a target. He apparently never heard the train coming because he was wearing earplugs. It is impossible to stop a train in a short distance. The crewman feels terrible, even though the crew was in no way at fault, and asked me to run this.
And, that brings me to another victim and that is the crew. Whenever a train hurts someone, the crew is often haunted by the experience even though there is nothing they can do.
Please, please, please don't ruin your holiday or your wedding. Stay off railroad tracks!!
