I know that crossing well. Took out an empty livestock trailer there a few years ago. There will likely be a local "witness" claiming that the engineer didn't blow the whistle. Whatever. We got it all on video, and no, officer - you can't have it.

Took 'em months to replace the overhead crossing signals. The driver (female) said she "thought she was in the clear". Tune changed when she heard the "witness" BS. Don't give a rodent's anus what the outcome was.

Truck drivers all think they're the biggest baddest thing on the road.

There are only 2 crossings there, 3d St. and Notus Rd. This was on 3d.


Sin wouldn't be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately.

All crossings have a small sign on the side with a crossing number and a phone number. If you ever get stuck or break down call that number. Dispatcher will alert any train coming

Seen a trannny smack dab in the middle of downtown LA.
The big ritzy high rise sky scrapers smack square center of the place.
Durndest thing I ever saw, besides the live Sex show dinner theater in Kharlesrhule long ago.

Anyways stopped real quick to use a ATM.
Cpt Stanton and SSG Hodakowski waiting for me in the Van
Trot across the street
Some blonde chick in a nice blue dress already at the machine ahead of me
Wait my turn

" chick" gets done turns around
Adam's apple and needs a shave.
I'm just standing their dumbfounded as " chick" is walking away looking at it walking away.
SSG Ski starts honking the horn I look over him and Cpt Stanton are dying in the van laughing.
Then seen it all go down didnt know it was a tranny either.
What got them laughing so hard was me just standing their dumbfounded by it all as it happened.


🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤣🤣🤣

Our school bus used to stop on the middle of the tracks. Drive onto the tracks and then open the doors and look to see if a train was coming. Wtf

I would think to look before driving the first set of axels over and looking.

Dude said it was a federal law and we had to stop on the tracks.

Spectacular videos. Really feel sorry for the participants.
I grew up by the D&RG and SantaFe lines south Denver/ Englewood. Saw several through the years at least the aftermath. Brother found body parts, glad I missed that excursion.

If you had real evidence, video or otherwise that an officer wants for an investigation how could keep it from him?

I don't think so. They have to stop and open the door BEFORE the tracks, not on them. With the pay that bus drivers get, they get some real winners.

I was on the bus MOFO I remember it as I stated.

Rode that bus 45 minutes every morning and afternoon for two years in Savannah Ga.

I sat up front first seat, I watched the door open and could look out my own seat window and see rails below me.
