    Starting this post for everyone to put the craziest fr8 deaths they've either heard of or witnessed.

    There was a death in my town not too long ago... a few years or so.... when this father stopped at the train trhaks and decided to show his little sons on the car how a train will flatten a coin if you put it on the trhaks. So he jumped out of the car and ran over to the trhaks where a train was on its way. I guess the guy didnt judge the distance very well cuz the train smacked him in the head jsut as e was putting the coin on the trhak. My friend was in his house at the time right there on the corner and glanced out of his window just in time to see it happen. The guys body shot about twenty feet in the air, decappitating the victim. All while his sons sat watching in the car. The train stopped a few miles away and the face of the guy was stuck to the front of the engine. My friend ran out there and was one of the only people to witness the accident and had to sit there and hold the kids back as they were screaming for thier daddy.

    fucked up shit eh?

    the train runs through our neighborhood about every thirty mins. Amtrak comes screaming through every night at about 70 mph around 9pm.

    there was this guy the other day that ran out onto the trhaks and committed suicide. crazy shit main.... crazy shit.

    Anyone else got any fucked up shit?

    when I was drunk along time ago, before they fenced up a section of mainline near a drinking spot, I had to pull somebody out of the path of a speeding train. She was yelling that she wanted to die (she just got fired from her bar job) and alcohol really fucks up your judgement. the engineer had been leaning on the horn for a long fucking time as she just stood there. I pulled her away....she probably would have moved at the last minute...but who knows.

    and from a little while back...

    WINNIPEG -- One man is dead after two freight trains smashed into his vehicle yesterday, which was sliced in half, and dragged the wreckage almost five kilometres.

    Emergency crews had to pry the victim's remains from a jagged tangle of metal wedged under a grain hopper car along the south Winnipeg rail line.

    Police say they were able to salvage a licence plate, but had not yet identified the driver.

    They could not determine the make of car.

    Traffic had stopped at the crossing for a 110-car westbound freight train.

    The barrier arms were down, signal lights were flashing and the train had already entered the crossing when the man drove past several vehicles already stopped, crashed through the barriers and was hit by the first train.

    The car spun and was wedged into the wheels and underside of a grain hopper car.

    The train continued moving west, its crew unaware of the deadly crash, until an eastbound freight train sliced off the protruding back half of the car.

    Crazy shit..every since i was a wee man i remember various times when people around my way would choose suicide by train..about the most gruesome way if you ask me.. trains are a powerful force you cant fuck with..you know the feeling of when a train comes through when your painting a yard..climb on the latter and feel the rumble of the engine and the force trembling through..you can scream and no one would hear a thing..stick your head out mear feet from the passing freights.. i love trains..its an addiction im willing to live with.

    so get this

    in my pussy ass backwards town, they outlawed train whistles. 7 residents made a big enough stink about it that the city council finaly caved and moved to ban all whistles unless there was an emergency. I don't know why the fuck these people decided to get a place near the tracks. anyway, that all changed when some drunk drove under a coal train and a few other non fatal accidents occured. whoops, I hope those anal retentive assholes can sleep better. peace to elton, who lost his leg trying to jump on a moving boxcar when we were both in 3rd grade.

    Moody died when he got pissed and sat dangling his legs over the platform edge waiting for a train. He was so pissed though, he didn't see the train coming. It caught one of his legs and dragged him under the carriage. Life sucks sometimes, innit?

    yeah Pa. has definitley had its share of train related deaths. i remember over the summer when every other week someone was getting killed by those new, super quiet Acela passenger trains. somebody died earlier this month from one, and its almost always the same thing: they were walking down the middle of the tracks and didnt hear it coming. i didnt understand until one day i was chilling near some tracks. one came buy at probably 80 miles an hour, and the thing was quieter than most cars.

    be carefull.
