This guy climbed on top of a live Br.186 locomotive. It's amazing that he didn't make contact with the 15,000 volt wire. The engineer lowered the pan quickly.

We have had that happen often. Two Princeton University students climbed on a set of MU electrics at Princeton station and were promptly electrocuted. They lived, but they lost hands and feet from touching the 11kv catenary. They sued and received a settlement from the railroad...

The justice system in this country has just gone nuts!! Stupidity is rewarded, and criminals are set free!
