Most drivers fail to consider the optical illusion that trains are going slower than
they are. I've sat in sidetracks awaiting opposing trains. I'd see em coming and
thot they were crawling. But when train arrived on main track at the side track
he'd be doing 60 or more MPH.

Takes thousands of feet to stop even lightly loaded freights. Even a mile or more
for 18,000 ton coal trains I used to run. I hit too many cars n trucks in 40 years
Begging you to BE CAREFUL it's my plea. People taking chances with kids in the
car. Dumb dumb dumb.
