OH MY GOODNESS! What a horrible happenstance! :eek:

I hope the officials will be lenient with the conductor. We all know how useless and crabby we can get when we're tired, sometimes not giving a hoot about what happens. Surely this is a forgivable transgression since no-one was injured.
:appl:

Or maybe we ought to get our government to regulate model trains, since it's obvious that just anyone owning/operating them can be extremely hazardous to the safety and well-being of the layout! Such abuses of potentially lethal projectiles must be controlled! Outlaw model trains!

I am surprised I did not hear about this on the news. I had to chuckle when
they told about the 2011 incident and alcohol the cause. The conductor certainly
does not have a clean record. I guess I really should not say anything cause I
once ran a train running 40 mph from the main into a siding that was filled with
a parked train. I had not checked to see which way the turnout was switched.
No one was killed but many of the railroad cars and engines were knocked from
the track. I was not hurt but it startled the crap out of me. It was unexpected.

They got lucky! I'm sure it shouldn't be too hard to fix. I guess there really can be too much trains! Ah, no wait, no there can't! :D
The scale in the picture appears to be 2-rail O Gauge.

As they sit at a table, two people inside would have a conversation.
"I bet you $20 a train will come crashing in here."
"You're on! That will never-"

*BOOM*
:D
