@crakrjak: a 6 to 10 foot piece of concrete is not going to flex. Same could be said of anything of short enough length. take a 6" diameter steel rod 6" long and try and flex it. Now make it 6'. Now make it 60'. Anything long enough will flex. And that is designed into skyscrapers. They are not one huge piece of concrete. Concrete has been around a long time. That is why building height was limited until they started using steel frames (which do flex).

As for vibration being only up and down, that would be like saying the train only pushes down on the tracks. Living next to a train track, I'm sure you know that there is random side to side motion, just like I'm sure you know that the conical shape of the wheels keeps the train from flying off the track.

Omg i would'nt count on the train not having some sort of thingey hanging down or sticking out, that could be very ugly.

nettech98: Concrete can and does bend, if it didn't the wind would've destroyed quite a lot of skyscrapers by now. Concrete also compresses, other wise it would be to fragile a material to build with.

The camera doesn't bounce 'randomly' because the weight of the cars above is is transferred through the bogie wheels evenly on each side.

Also the type of gravel used for train right-of-ways is a lot larger and heavier then the gravel used for roads.

Not to mention that the steel tires on the bogie wheels wear out and literally pound on the rails so hard they can be heard for over a mile away and have been known to set off car alarms.

So not cool. Yeah, so he lived. But I feel very sorry for the poor driver who probably thought he'd just killed him. Some people are just idiots.

"flying gravel cloud following trains around."

I would go out of my way to watch trains if this were the case.

@crakrjack: concrete does not bend, it cracks. If the camera were bouncing, it would do so randomly, and the center of the picture would change. It only noticeably does so at the very end.

Regardless, any 'bouncing' would not cause a soft dead weight to rise up off the bed of the tracks. Proof of this would be why there's no flying gravel cloud following trains around.

@auburnjunky I don't even know how to reply to that. One of the worst retorts I have ever seen.

nettech98: I've lived near train tracks for several years, The rails bend from weight of the trains and the ties do flex as well (doesn't matter if they are concrete or wood).

A train, and it's cars, are a lot heavier than you think they are, and the camera is visibly bouncing.

would just be really loud and windy, as long as you know that the clearance is high enough, wouldn't be that much of a risk.
