If nothing else, this photo has generated lots of talk. I find it particularly horrifying and my gut feeling is that I don't like seeing it on Railpictures. However, I acknowledge that the photo would be a powerful candidate for use in highway and railroad crossing safety education, such as an Operation Lifesaver program. If this photo wouldn't get the message across, what would? In those instances, it's the intent not to sugar coat reality and show the harsh consequences of thoughtless actions. However, Railpictures isn't the venue I'd have chosen for this 'harsh reality' photo had I taken it (which I probably wouldn't have in the first place).
