I don't know of anyone who's done that, maybe because I didn't grow up around trains. Is it commonplace here in Chicagoland? I've lived here 8 years and haven't heard of teenagers jumping on trains.

I feel bad for the girl, but DAMN that was stupid.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I used to travel cross country by train, carry my stuff wrapped in a rag tied to a stick. Nothing but me and and the other hobos, drinking thunderbird and living free. Good times, good times.

I know people who've done it, but it wasn't common place. I was mostly referring to the equally stupid shit we used to do as teenagers.

we use to play on the railroad tracks when we were kids. But we knew better not to mess with them when they are were approaching.

What a nightmare. The trains never passed by us slow enough. But if they did we always talked about hopping one. Problem for us is we wouldnt know where it would slow down next to drop us off.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

I grew up right next to the Union Pacific line. The trains used to stop all of the time. I had to climb under or through them 1000s of times to get to school in the morning otherwhise I would have to walk almost an extra mile to get around it. We used to play on them, run on top of them and jump from car to car and all kinds of crazy stupid shit. It's amazing I never got killed.

Grew up in the city next to two freight yards back in the 50's & 60's. We did it back then. We would also grab onto the IC bar on the back of trucks and go skeechin' in the winter when it would snow. We heard all the horror stories back then too.

Even my fat ass can hop on a train if it's going slower than 7mph. I have done 10mph, but it's not pretty. My fastest dismount off a train is 19mph.

Union labor FTW.

No shit. Looking back I have no idea how more things I did, did not go wrong when I was a young fearless idiot. Man, every year I age I become more careful. Sucks

My younger bro and I used to do that all the time on the tracks off of Sheridan Rd in North Chicago when we where kids. Then again we also used to climb the water tower and drink a backpack full of Black Label, or get good and buzzed up, walk the pier at Waukegan harbor to the lighthouse, jump in and swim to the beach and back(at night). Jesus sometimes I think back at some of the ignorant shit we did..

If that train derails, a lot of Americans will get their jobs back.
