I thought this article was about Geargia's dress code ? Or is it about Vols beating the #1 team in the land after whipping up on "cough" Montana ?
james my email is email@example.com be more than glad to disscus this in a less than public forum
actually they were lying across the tracks and made no movement as the train approached. This is one of the reason it is being throughly investigated.It is rare the when some commits suicide by train they dont look up at the engine at least once. the only times I have ever heard the person didn't make any movement was when drugs, alcohol, or foul play was involed.
@Solv I have rode and drove many a freight train but never have been on a cargo train. Track speed though there is 50 mph on a regular freight train and 60 on autorack and pig trains. Have ran the speed limit on several trains through there
Would like to correct the reporter's error in that NS owns the tracks. The city of Cincinnati owns the line fron Cinc. to chatt. NS simply leases it
Now for the lawyer's comment about the horn. While it is not required to blow most private crossings. I can promise u the train crew didn't just sit there and watch as thier train ran someone over, they were laying on the horn. It is a very tramatic experiance to go through, one that most RR's go to great lengths to avoid.
@James101 this paper should hire u. Your r alot closer to what happened than this reporter
