Train accidents- dont try to beat the train!

Post by Conrail1990 »

I am making a movie on what happens when you try to beat a train to a crossing and I need some footage. Does anybody have any good sites to look from? Besides youtube.

Too bad no shots of them hosing down these trains to get all the pieces of leftover hamburger human off the loco. That might make an impression.

Very nice video. Sad thing is people will still continue to try and beat trains.

Another forum that I visit (first off I'll say it is normally a very good forum with mostly useful posts) had pictures of what happens when someone tries to beat a train while walking. If I can find those pictures I'll post a LINK to them later on. Very disturbing.

Alright I found the pictures I was looking for but after looking at them I don't feel that they'd be the best things to even link to on the forums.
To if the guy who created the video would like to see them to see if they could be included in the video Private Message me and I can send you the links.
