Theres always gonna be morons in this world just the way it is. but heres the beauty of a moron doing that . They got smashed by the train hence no more idiot to infect the rest of the world . I just thought it would look cool with the loco i have.

not saying its not and i actualy have "operation lifesaver" caboose. what i'm wondering however is lets say i'm an idiot. i run under closing gates all day. and then suddenly i see a caboose or a loco with "operation lifesaver" logo. is that really something that will make me go "oh... i guess i need to stop running under closing gates."
i highly doubt.
IMHO, thats a PR action on railroad companys part "look! we are trying."

Nice work...I really do like it.

My favorite stood at a grade crossing for many years...it was a thoroughly crushed car that was wrecked at that crossing---with a sign over it saying simply, "If it's a tie...you lose."

I like it. Here's a piece of trivia on the topic, though. I work for a trucking company. It's not well known, but railroads can employ railway police to monitor crossings, among other things. They can issue traffic tickets within their (the railroad right-of-way) jurisdiction that are just as valid as a State Trooper's. In addition, if the driver is in a CMV (Commercial Motor Vehicle), there is an automatic suspension of license for 2 to 6 months for things like not looking before crossing, crossing when it's not clear, dodging around the gates, or stopping while straddling a crossing, even if it's because someone ahead of you stopped. It's not only stupid but can hit you in the wallet to beat the train, even on a bicycle.

Hey, forgive my ignorance - was the car completely undecorated to start?
Great job either way. I like it.

First of all, you guys totally got way off the subject with the car.
Your car looks good, I would think as long as "you like it" who cares what the mass' think.?
I think its kind of kool, not prototype, but kool.

Just for the record, you might be suprised at who might get a "reality check" just seeing it go by. I think like most of us, when we were kids, loved to watch a train go by. If ONE child askes their dad, "what does that mean dad?", and he gives him the jist of it. It might one day save his/his families life.
That my friends, is why they do this.....
