Unless it happened again, it was commented on here: http://www.modeltrainforum.com/showthread.php?t=162009Did this make the news here?
Sorry if it was already posted.
An un-guarded crossing, he made a left off the road right in front of the train. Looking at the road and the tracks he was traveling in the same direction of the train and turned in front of it? Never saw it?
Never stopped looked or listened?
I know the company and am trying to find one driver who knows more about it.
They say other trucks have been hit here too, maybe it is time for some gates and bells?
Must have been a hell of a ride, nasty stuff in the tanker too! Glad I don't haul acid anymore.:smokin:
Well we do have 1 load of a 25% caustic mix we haul to a local water treatment plant but is only maybe 4 times a year,
Guess who mainly sees the load!
Exactly. Too many rules had to be broken for this to happen.When you're running at "restricted speed", you must have visibility 2x the distance needed to stop the train. If the engineer in the trailing train was adhering to that rule, he had plenty of room to stop. My guess is he wasn't and was probably going too fast as well.
Yeah, I read that too. Let's see, vehicle crosses tracks, train hits vehicle. Sounds like a cause to me.https://clarion.causeaction.com/2019/11/23/authorities-amtrak-train-hits-vehicle-in-florida-3-dead/
I think the cause of the crash is that the car was on the tracks!
And they're looking for the people who were in the RV. Hmm, why did they run away?Metrolink train slams into RV on tracks in Santa Fe Springs, leaves 4 injured - VIDEO
I guess everyone has seen this?
I think they need a new camper now.
