    Texas Eagle wins by a nose-a LOCOMOTIVE NOSE!! Accident occurred in Cibolo,TX near San Antonio. Everyone is OK by the way.
    Train whacks stuck truck off tracks in wild video
    For sale:One slightly used Freightliner Century Class condo sleeper. Being parted out! Most of the smaller parts are already out of the truck due to the train doing part of the work! Cheap!!;)

    After a collision with an Amtrak train? I don’t think so. NTSB and DOT will more than likely hold it for evidence.

    I am driven crazy about where did that vest come from. It aint that train engine. And its not around the cab but either escaped via drivers door after the spin or in the ditch to left of pavement and thought twice about staying.

    There should be one at the crossing on a placard installed on the crossing signals. Once those gates came down and lights activated however,it was already too late,a collision was inevitable. Amtrak trains usually hurdle along at 70-80 mph(sometimes higher in certain parts of country) and take a mile or more to stop,even when thrown into emergency!
