Your point being? I'm sure they don't say a lot of things about the job. And it's not like this is a common occurrence. I doubt they tell airline pilots at hiring sessions that they could be blinded by lasers too...

My point is, railroading is a dangerous job. The employees are paid an extremely high wage for what the job entails because of that. Look at the difference in wages between railroaders and over the road truckers and you will see what I mean. The jobs are VERY similar. A little flash every once in a while isnt going to hurt them... I would be shocked if there is even one documented case of injury based on it. In fact more death, injury and damage has been caused by crew cell phone use. Fact...
