    When railroading goes bad...

    Figured since all the news of AWE1549 is winding down, I'd share a bit of what happens when things go wrong in my other industry of interest...railroading. Somebody ran a stop signal...and...well...you'll see. Head-on, do NOT apply directly to the forehead!

    Ohhhhh yeah. It definitely did. Conductor of the train that ran the signal was high on cocaine. Amazing part is everyone of the crew members lived! Here's the aftermath...
