did anyone else notice that the camera was perfectly still(As if on a tripod), and the picture was pretty clear?

Perhaps the train slowed quick coz it was already slowing down, it`s hard not to notice an 18 wheel truck on the rail ahead of you.

EPIC MISCALCULATIONS.

At the rate that the train was going, shouldn`t the crossing barriers gone down long before the semi crossed the track, not while the semi was crossing the track?

It`s kind of epic that when the engineer hit the "oh-shi_t" button the horn sounded.

Lost_In_Time, They`re not suppose to slow down that fast because it can damage the brakes, all the wheels and the rails.

I am pretty sure this video clip is staged. I remember seeing it, or one just like it, as part of a safety video. It was one of the "Don`t try and out run the train" videos for people who like to squeeze past the train to avoid stopping.

Iamnotbored2: I just went back to look at the video for the 11th time. Unfortunately, the video starts when the train is just about 100 feet from the semi. It`s quite possible that the train driver stopped blowing the horn and braced himself for the impact. It also looks like the train is coming around a curve, so it`s possible (though highly unlikely) he didn`t see the truck in time.

While you are correct on the noise ordinance/safety issue, some people don`t know the difference (or don`t care) and will fine either way. They get scared or worried that they`ll get in trouble, panic, and don`t follow proper procedure.

No matter who is at fault, I`ll bet the semi driver has lost his license and has to pay for the trailer.

rifter,

There are ordinances against unnecessary blowing of air horns certainly. Trains would often blow their horn when approaching a traffic area. However those ordinances do NOT prohibit blowing your horn if you see someone on the tracks, like say a truck. They simply require the train operators NOT blow their horns unless there is a clear and present danger/need, such as when an 18 wheeler is on the track. Noise reduction does NOT trump safety.

Actually, LadyAlathia, look closely. You can see the barrier being bent forward by the semi. You can also hear the warning bells if you listen hard enough.

And FYI, some areas do not allow horns to sound across certain crossroads because of noise ordinances. Very stupid laws IMO.

The lights and barriers weren`t down. Anyone else notice that? That`s an AUTOMATIC system, folks.

Yeah, the lack of the train blowing the horn indicates there`s something more to this than we`re being told. Probably something out of a safety video.

Staged? Wouldn`t the train be blowing its horn if it was about to hit something? Trains by my town blow their horns EVERY TIME they are about to cross a road. So I doubt that that cameraman was "lucky" as the description says.
