THE SNAIL FORGOT HIGH-VISIBILITY JACKET NO!
Was there another train behind it or was it a shadow or something
I don't know what network rail leaves the old people like they're idiots over coming on the road
1:43 yay snail
I think we need to build cars like trains did you see any damage
I hope the snail is okay…
Jeremy, how is a high visibility jacket going to protect you if a grand piano falls on top of you
2:44 – poor snail… 🐌😥
Tarin is ready now see the Tairn
at very hihg speed
No the class 47
Railway lines were a popular method of suicide at one time and I heard the ambulance crew got a bonus if they recovered more than 90% of the body!
2:44 is what I am on monday
Hi. Be careful around trains.
3:00 you're welcome
That reliant robin was red and blue hahahahah
Nice colour changing reliant robin
R.I.P snail 2:42
I have no pity for people who get hit by train, acting this stupid.
This was shot 8 years ago before privatisation of British rail and it’s diesels and the trains of today go way faster than the BR diesels so imagine that with avanti west coast locomotive
Edit: wait no it’s just a br diesel that was obsolete and the bbc just bought it as it was gonna be scrapped so multiple unit diesels still exist
0:30 well no u could have an American come over and drive on the wrong side of the road
OH, uhhh… I guess… that's why we have laws for cowcatchers on our locomotives, the buffers just TORE right through the car, and the lack of coverage for the wheels and frames didn't help at all
Granted, our trains are heavier and take longer to stop, and still do a lot a damage, but still
I hope they removed the snail
technically the train would go farther in a real accident because there are cargo or what ever they are called
I’ve been told that on day 1 of train engineer/driver school you get told that you will kill someone one day, it probably won’t be your fault, but if you aren’t prepared for that, this job isn’t for you.
this is a great example of why operation lifesaver was founded by the union pacific railroad. stop look and listen at any railroad crossing gates or no gates
"We see the really concerning thing."
"HE WASN'T WEARING A PIECE OF HIGHLIGHTER COLOURED FABRIC WHILE DRIVING!"
i guess it isn't good to try go across the train crossing while lights go off without safety clothing but it is kinda funny
2:44 that's a really unfortunate shot.
I hope the snail is ok
