Saw a dandy today. Two guys on a snowmobile going down the ROW right beside the track.
Do you think they would hear a train coming up behind them, especially as they were just past a blind curve.

Nope...they wouldn't care until the train is right on top of them, by then it's too late.

Thumbs down

There was a lady walking right down the tracks on the north side of town yesterday. Apparently not very bright, she also had a coat, but no hat on. Yesterday's high was 10 degrees.

Yeah, because no one on this site ever walks down RR tracks.

LYNDON STATION, Wis. (AP) - A 20-year-old man is dead after being hit by an Amtrak train near the central Wisconsin town of Lyndon Station.

The Juneau County sheriff's department reports the man walked onto the tracks just before the train passed at about noon Sunday and didn't acknowledge the train.

The report initially came in as a train hitting a snowmobile but it was later determined a snowmobile was not involved.

The sheriff's department and county coroner are investigating. The victim's name has not been released.

Lyndon Station is about 45 miles northwest of Madison.
