Yup, I watched for about 10 seconds, took a good look at the tracks and waited for the derailing... how did they not see it coming?

A blink lasts for about 0.3 to 0.4 seconds. You blink about five times a minute, every minute, for about 18 hours a day. This adds up to about 30 minutes a day and about 5 years in a lifetime. So you spend five years of our life with your eyes shut from blinking. (Excluding sleep). Surely you don't begrudge that 1m 18s of nothing happening! (By not blinking for 45 minutes or so, it would be possible to catch up on lost time for looking at more pointless stuff).

Christ, how about a little editing? There is like 20 seconds of anything actually happening in that entire 1:38.

The railway minded amongst us will have noticed that the signal is still at 'stop`. The driver was not looking in the direction of travel; or at that speed he would have seen it. The signalman may have given a `permission to pass a signal at danger` to the driver via a radio link, but it is the driver`s responsibility to check the road and proceed accordingly.
In this case, the `catch points` did exactly what they are designed to do; that is derail an errant train away from the running road and prevent a potential collision with a train authorised to run on that road.
