    WTF was that driver doing?

    Can see the concrete wall directly in front of the tracks forcing him into a 90* turn that is impossible to make.

    Staying in the truck once the gates went down kinda looks like a suicide attempt.

    They are wooden cross boards. They come down on you you have two choices, both mean breking a crosing arm. Crossing arm is far cheaper than getting the trailer cut in two. That is unless you wanted a new trailer.

    Lol, the Rockland line. Metro North's idiot cousin they never speak of. It actually runs on NJT rails below Suffren. I wasn't even aware they ran service much father up the line, but then there's been lots of growth up that way.
     
    mjd4277 Thanks this.

    Looks like he can make the corner now that his trailer is shorter.
