I'm watching this on MSNBC. Can't tell exactly where it is, but I'm guessing in that train yard in Cicero. I thought I saw lots of other frieght cars in the background.

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

Saw pictures on the news. An Amtrak had a low speed collision when it rear ended a freight train.
