Unfortunately, this very dangerous hobby just exists since years, and of course we should'nt promote these things not to encourage other's to start with such a near-suizide-hobby. But, do we always do what we should? No!

So I ask you, if you meant THIS VIDEO (as the above link seems very dead):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZvm5H4F-aA
If you bear it to look at that stuff, so you will have to see this one too:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoT9v...eature=related

This second video was made to explain the first one - but don't blame me for anything of the content, is this all true - yours to believe it or not !

For the railroad personal and the conductor all this must be kind of a nightmare.

That's a different video.

The video that was posted was a shot from a camera laid between the tracks, with the author, face down, on the ballast, as a train roars overhead, which seems more dangerous than the "train surfing" video posted above.

In anyway these guys don't like so much to live. If you would do such thing here in Europe, this would be extremely dangerous, because one of our security devices nearly goes down to the ground. Devices are placed along signal posts and all engines touch them when passing by.

If you like you may check out the noise of that (some double shrubbing) device on one of my latest videos at about 9 seconds after starting:

All judgement aside -- he's a stupid a-hgole to do this, but a freaking moron to keep doing it if he has a 4 yr. old daughter -- who is shooting that video on top of the train? I don't understand how someone is standing there shooting the video.

Hi Joe, didn't you never picture yourself that way? Seems so badly simple, but it works. Simply point your cam' towards yourself with your arm away from the body. - Believe, its no joke: I did this sometimes as I wanted to take some picture of me and my wife and didn't have a tripod by hand.
BUT, this wouldn't go easy with a 2 lbs and more weighing SLR camera (unless you do heavy body building all day): rather try this with some compact camera.
That was the only explanation I found how this man did this.

The monitor I was watching on last night is very dark, but I didn't see the tell tale signs that he was shooting that himself on the train. But the only other explanation is actually post processing, not someone else on the train, so he has to be shooting it himself.
