It is not the railroads fault it takes a long time for a train to stop. They should have been more careful. Yes it is illegal to be on railroad property. But that is something we all do to get to the good fishing spots

it is not trespassing when the rod and reel club owns the property that they crossed the tracks on and yes the railroad company was at fault when they have no gates or did not sound their whistles to let people know they were coming through that area .and i think you all need to realize that it is my neice that you are all talking about in a bad manner and my sister.get a life and grow the heck up.accidents happen and this accident could not be avoided by my sister or my neice .they were doing fifty in a 35 and there is a road there that crosses the tracks and still no whistles .

take the gate situation up with your state. Rr doesn't decide bout gates. Don't matter if tracks splits your property in half. If in tracks you're trespassing. As for alleged speeding. It's not a slap on wrist & see you. It's career & prison. Btw. I've never seen a train swerve to hit or miss anything Sorry bout your niece. But put blame where it belongs.

. Well you have to realize that the rr is not at fault for this at all. In order you to be hit by a train you have to be on the tracks right ? And if you we're on the tracks that means you were trespassing illegally on rr property correct? And I may not be a lawyer but trespassing is against the law correct sir ? So who is really at fault here the rr or a bunch of trespassers ?
