In reply to why people don't just get out of the way:

I agree. But I do remember a young girl I used to go to school with getting hit by a train. She was walking on a trestle and when they heard it coming (probably around 50mph), the others who were with her said she froze up. I guess flight or fight doesn't kick in with trains.

I think we can agree most accidents involving trains and non-train objects are preventable. I've often wondered why with 2 mainlines in one town and awkward intersections near crossings, why I haven't seen many people get hit, but I guess my neck of the woods is smarter. Lol.
