    Reminds me of that story a few years ago when a guy in the NY subway had a fit and fell onto the rails and some guy managed to jump down and pin him between the tracks before a train passed over him by about an inch.

    Of course, she was probably just noting the undercarriage serial numbers.

    On Britain's fine railways they're usually on the side of the carriage. Crazy foreigners.

    Sorry about the male/american comment, I was just kidding :)

    Nexxo, are you sure some trains aren't high enough? I'm not crazy, or anything, I can just imagine it being an absolutely awesome life-affirming feeling, to pull it off. There must be a way to be sure.

    Har har :rolleyes:
    I spose I could lay a manequin on the tracks and see if it got clipped, but I might get sued for traumatizing the driver.

    Actually, that's another source of moral discomfort, even if you survive you might mentally scar a Virgin Rail employee for life :lol:

    In all honesty you really shouldn't even think about it as if the train hits you theres the possiblity of the train slipping off the rails although that's probably unlikely but there'still a lot of potential collateral damage.

    just dont try it in the US. Our trains have front shields that sit VERY close to the tracks so unless you are the less than height of the rail + 1in to 2in you are screwed.

    in Holland we use a mixture of two types of trains. A Darwin Award was recently awarded to the idiot who tried doing this with a doubledecker train :duh:

    Anyway, doing this at all is just stupid. You could try to figure it iyt by placing a series of sticks with varying lengths in the track. If the sticks are thin enough to not damage anything then the train driver will not even know. You need to get information on different positions (middle, left, right), and for diffeerent train types. You will need to investigate which train drives when.

    Or you could go to a themepark and get your cheap thrills there ;)

    if that was a suicide attempt, it must have given her a wake up call.

    But why did she lay between the tracks, not on them, as that would have been the way to get yourself killed for sure.

    Looks like it might have been a stunt..............prehaps.

    Hahaha.
    Theme parks are so dull; once you realise you can't come to any harm, there's little novelty in the fact that the rides go fast and turn upside down and stuff.

    It's why I've always hated those indoor practice climbing walls - yeah, they're safe and a comfortable, zero-risk way to practice climbing, but that's exactly why they suck - even if you get to the top, you're still just a f****t clinging to some plastic blocks in a gymnasium.

    Real danger = real experience.

    Artificial danger = intangible sense of anticlimax.

    Tell that to the poor suckers who rode the Texas Cyclone, and were accidentally routed through the maintenance bay at 60mph.

    Here's the semi-famous video of Mikey the Pikey doing it:
