Things aren't adding up in your story as far as I can tell. I don't hear any shouting. Unless it was a deaf family, I'm pretty sure they heard the horn well in advance of the train getting to where they were. And when you say "bearing down" on them, I don't really consider 10-15 mph as "bearing down" on anyone.

Also, the account from the (alleged) engineer doesn't jive with your account of events:
I love the video you took, but let me tell you who I am. I'm the engineer of the train you are looking at in the video. You are a young fellow, very thin, I waved at you. The family was not on the tracks I blew at them to be friendly. The woman was taking video, the man was waving and they had a couple of kids watching the train pass by. No one was even close to the train.
