I'll bet a couple of those firemen have been known to yell out..."hey y'all, watch'iss". I certainly hope that is a staged pic.

At least it will fire trucks on the scene when the train derails.

I don’t know whose idea, but they’re an idiot. No wonder public employees get a bad rap.

No derailment, the loco will cut through that crap like butter.

Where did this happen? Lou, I can't believe our PA firefighters and emergency responders could show this level of incompetence. Oh wait, never mind...

Hopefully it was more a sign to the loco driver so they realize what they are about to shred. Or "it says right here in the manual when crossing any road..."

Looks like it was in Europe if I had to guess.

They don't have rubber wheels, but they do have suspension systems.
