    i'm so happy i watched that...i learned some good facts...

    like it can take up to a mile and a half for a train to stop after breaking...

    a propane explosion can blow a tanker half a mile into the air like a toy...

    I noticed that a couple of those wrecks were due to the line's weight being miscalculated and they didn't have enough braking power to stop the train. I really hope that it didn't have anything to do with them not being able to read the car weights. It's probably a good idea to stay clear of those, just in case. I do anyways, but I know a lot of writers don't. I personally don't want to be responsible for a train wreck and people being hurt or killed. Masking tape or cutting around them.

    The workers could theoretically walk around to the other side of the car to get the weights, but I'm sure they don't always have time to walk around the line, and it's dangerous to hop between cars, so I'd assume they aren't allowed to pop through the line, for safety reasons. In my experience, that's their biggest concern, is safety. Like many many writers said before, respect the workers and what their job is, and graffiti won't be such a problem. A television program such as this reiterates the point that the railroad is a dangerous industry and any writer with half a brain will avoid interfering with car/weight information.
