Reason for the UP coal train stall yesterday afternoon.  A female took a walk on the tracks downtown.  Didnt make it. 

Suicide by train?

I imagine that's hard for the engineer to live with.  I was involved with a near-miss with a school bus at a grade crossing 40+ years ago and it still gives me chills.

We get that a lot out here, seems like every week or two these days.  Since there are mostly passenger trains on the LOSSAN corridor, the incidents become a real headache.  Just had another late last week.
