Passenger Train Comes Face To Face With Freighter Train On Same Track

DailyMail: The terrifying moment in which a head-on collision between a passenger train and a freighter was only narrowly avoided, has been captured on camera, preserving the memory of the lucky escape forever for those involved. The spine-tingling incident occurred in Ontario, Canada where a full speed VIA train carrying commuters between Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto, met a stationary freight train in its path. Footage captured by a nearby spectator, shows the engineer of the passenger train jumping out of the locomotive cab in a bid to save his own life before the inevitable crash.

 

Don’t train conductors have the same ‘going down with the boat’ policy as ship captains? Guess not. Bailing on the train when you’re responsible for all those people in the back seems like a pretty pussy way to handle this situation but when you’re going nose to nose with a freighter train then it might be another story so I dunno. Could make for a good ‘Would You Rather’ on Thursday…

 

Meet Ivet Lalova Of Bulgaria!

 

Someone please tell me when the track event in the Olympics is because I will for sure be tuning in. Ivet Lalova is running for Bulgaria and has the best warmup technique I’ve ever seen. Normally I’d call the cameraman out for being a creeper but how else are you suppose to entertain yourself at one of these things?
