Yard Safety

Recommended Posts

Guest Avocado

Thanks for the insight on safety cracked. However, I've never ever experienced that method you call 'hummping'.

 

My rule of thumb for being around any train tracks, whether in a yard or a single line in the damn country is: Never walk between the rails-always walk on the outside.

 

About that dead hobo site, I think those pictures were made on the computer. I understand that a body will decay and look different when dead but some of those bodies looked straight-up fake. What do you think?

 

The bull at my local CP yard loves giving tresspass tickets to anyone that steps on the property. I think it's his hobby. When I see a peice in the yard I tie my shoes extra tight, sprint in and sprint out. No dilly-dallying! He's a real prick!

I'm no expert on fresh corpses, but I think the majority of the ones at rotten.com are genuine...people who have died violently I think are hard to comprehend, to the brain...they look strange, like broken dolls or toys, and shit is bizarrely out of place, not the shapes or colors you'd draw if you were told to draw dead bodies.

Anyway, that's enough of this subject, what's the thread again?

Some drunk kid got hit in my yard the other day by a car that had been humped. I think that they hump cars way faster than 5mph..because I can hear the "booms" all day and night...even when on the other side of town.

 

So..yeah...don't drink and play around trains!

I don't really know how to fake being a railfan, because I sort of am one. If you don't feel the freight love in your veins, and you just want an excuse for being seen in the yard, just keep it simple, say you like trains, seeing them roll and shit. Another way to go if you don't know enough to front as a railfan is just to say you don't like people much and you often wander the lonely areas like train tracks and shit.

Don't stick your hands in the couplers, especially if there's some activity in the yard. You never know when they'll decide to start shoving cars together.

Good looking out Cracked, info is always appreciated.

 

Not sure if any of you have these in your local yard, but over here, in the city's biggest yard which is half CN and half CP, the use of remote control engines is in full effect. Essentially, the worker walks along the tracks with a remote control and works the engine from there (you see, trains are BIG toys!!!). Its cool to watch, but is also very dangerous for a couple of reasons. 1) There is no conductor in the engine, so no one to blow the horn to tell you to get the fuck out of the way. 2) With the worker controlling the engine from the ground, you may be paying attention to him and not notice the ghost rider train coming at you from the opposite direction.

Another piece of advice. If you feel the need to close the door on an open boxcar so you can complete that purty end2end you have been planning (which I do not recommend), keep in mind that once you get the momentum built up the door won't stop until it slams shut, with or without your fingers in the way.

Play safe, clean your spots and never accept candy from men in trenchcoats.

ok defy, were all really impressed with your Amtrack ID, now give it a rest.

I got a little spooked today when I was getting flix. I went to a little spur that serves a carboard recylcing plant, 3 boxcars at a loading dock. They used the dock periodically during the day (I've taken flix while a forklift was loading things inside) but as I walked up to it today the whole line starting moving! They must have a way to move it with the forklift or somthing, I couldnt see from where I was. This is a spot where I would have made an exception and gone over the couplers since its a dead end, and the approach is straight and highly visible. Made me rethink my safety a bit.

Guest your motherfucker

WeRD TO CRACKED. I USED TO WORK FOR NORFOLK SOUTHERN AND I LEARNED A WHOLE BUNCH OF SHIT ABOUT SAFETY. DO NOT UNDER ESTIMATE A YARD AND IT'S SOROUNDING'S. I'VE SEEN GUY'S GET HIT BY A TRAIN GOING 5-10 MPH AND IT'S BROKE THERE BONES. I'M NOT PROUD OF THIS, BUT I'VE ACTUALLY HIT AND KILLED SOMEONE WHILE I WAS AT WORK. WE WERE COMING OUT OF THE YARD GETTING UP SPEED AND THIS GUY WAS WALKING DOWN THE TRACK AND BOOM!! DECAPITATION TO IT'S FULLEST. IT WASN'T A PRETTY SIGHT. THE GUY WAS JUST BEING STUPID AND THOUGHT HE WAS BEING FUNNY AND HE ENDED UP DEAD. THIS IS A LITTLE OFF SUBJECT BUT I DON'T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT SOME KID GETTING HIT BY A TRAIN OR GETTING CRUSHED CAUSE THAT SHIT MAKES FOR A BAD DAY. I'VE HAD PLENTY OF SHIT GO DOWN IN THE YARD WHILE I'M WORKING. ALWAY'S STAY 100% WHEN YOUR IN THEM. PLEASE!!
