I'm sorry, but some people deserve to be hit by trains! What a maroon. And as a side thought, I've been near tracks like that on foot he didn't FEEL the train approaching when it was a couple of hundred feet away? Wow.

Wow, a new definition of oblivious!
I admit I used to walk on tracks, balancing on one rail 1 foot in front of the other, but then again I was 12. And, it was summertime so I was barefoot (loved the feel of the smooth warm iron under my feet 8-) barefoot so I felt the train coming vibrating the track under my feet, long before it came into sight. This guy was extremely lucky,I hope he's smart enough to take this warning sign from the universe and stop being such a doofus!

Gotta make sure there is a place on the side to jump if need be, and can put foot on railing to feel for vibe. He is one lucky mother fer.

Oh wow, that flashed me back to the scene in the movie "stand by me" (Will Wheaton long before Star Trek TNG) where the boys were caught out on a train trestle, and had to outrun the oncoming locomotive to get to the point where there was a place to jump sideways off the tracks.

good movie, and havn't seen it in many years. Overall train tracks are dangerous, just have to be very careful when taking a walk on them. Rails for trails turns abandoned tracks into walking trails.

Janet, the tracks are safer to walk (depending on ones condition) than they are to drive over,... seriously.
