Trains Staff wrote: NOPALA DE VILLAGRAN, Mexico — A 29-year-old woman was struck and killed today while trying to take a photo during the passage of CPKC’s Final Spike Steam Tour train in the Mexican state of Hidalgo, according to multiple media reports.


The news site Debate reports that the woman was standing next to the tracks trying to take a selfie with the train’s locomotive; photos of the moment before the woman was struck are widespread on news sites and social media, and a video of the accident is also circulating. Other photos show a huge number of spectators crowding the tracks near the Aragón station in the muncipality of Nopala de Villagrán, where CP 4-6-4 No. 2816 and the CPKC executive train were scheduled to make a 20-minute stop at 12:25 p.m. Reports say that spectators ignored instructions from security at the site to maintain a safe distance from the track.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene upon the arrival of emergency responders. She has been identified but her name has not been released. Other family members were reportedly with her at the time of the accident.
