Railroad Stupidity

Since part of the goal of this blog is to help people live safer lives, I wanted to bring this to your attention. From Ed at Trainorders.com:

At right are two 'gentlemen,' one of which is carrying a beer can (not visible) who decided to rush across the tracks to place coins on the track ahead of the BNSF stack train (at left) coming at them at full speed. One slip and they are ground beef. Not to mention the chance the coin will be ejected by the train's wheel and injure one of them.

Please educate your children that train tracks are not recreation areas. 


  1. Good post ... once I got past the headline. Perhaps "Trespasser Stupidity"? That would be more accurate. :)
