I can understand the road leading up to the crossing might be a little blind to the train traffic, but how do you not hear the train at that close range and not see it in your prepheral vision (it's YELLOW!)... darwin award...

I have hit a lot of stuff with my trains, and my locomotives look like this. People are just idiots. You can barely feel cars when you hit them, and will rarely derail a train when you hit.

Rarely - but just often enough.

Believe it or not, unless a train is sounding its whistle you can barely hear it until it gets close.

Young man, you need to get out of the office more I picked up empties from commercial yard, and when going engine light from the Belt to Commercial, the whistle stuck open. I did the air test while the engineer talked to the MIC, and i could hear the whistle from 104 cars back. Thats over a mile, about 5850 feet or something. Loud enough the real police, not the gumshoes, showed up and told us to knock it off.
For the rest of you that have no idea what I said, let me explain. Eclipse9R is a boss at my work, and I am a conductor. Sometimes we are called from his office to do work for that side of Union Pacific. He is a good guy, but is bad when he will not let you go home early to go motorcycle riding.

Same with a big truck. I have had several people run into my truck and I hardly felt it when they totaled their car.

No more outside work for me. You misread, I said it would be difficult to hear a train approaching & not blowing its whistle.

If I'm at work & can't ride, neither can you!
