At about the 1:21 mark is when it gets interesting here. Idiot kids playing chicken and then a guy just walks in front of the train at the next crossing like its nothing. Idiots.

As my sainted Grand Mother would say, Not all of the crazy people are in the Crazy House. Also, in some states, if a cop caught you doing that a citation would be issued. That would make an impression on you.

Let this be a warning to ALL railfans...
 
Expect A Train On Any Track At Any Time
 
This person is very lucky (Guy in Grey jacket at :21 sec into video). A few inches to his right and he would have been another statistic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rO3GrP-_TXY

If the trespasser hadn't moved - he'd have been dead. If if weren't for what it would do to the crew, i'd be inclined to say "What a pity he responded to the horn".  Just asking for it to settle on the tracks that way - they are for trains, not people on foot.
