Yep, Deer in the headlights.
At least some of the people had sense to get to the back of the platform,
Making stuff that works, using outdated Software on outdated Hardware.
More like texting while commuting.
Who gets the lawsuit? Amtrak or Metro North? Lucky nobody got knocked off the platform onto the other track.
Just how do they battle deep snow on third rail territory? Can they even flange it? Gosh I miss the days when responsible people ran railroads are were not afraid of the impact that a night plow run would have on the Operating Ratio.
A agree. Seems only the UP and BNSF still use snow plows in a few locations. I liked it in the old days when wedge plows and jordan spreaders were put to work on pushing the crap out of the way.
The LIRR had a rotary snow plow that is at SteamTown. I bet it ran on the third rail districts if not too wide back in the day.
A Jordan Spreader might be able to be used as a plow in a limited ability on the third rail tracks? Only using the front as a battering ram against the snow with a couple diesels pushings.
Looks like most of the people were shooting video as well. They knew it was coming.
Doesn't help that they shoveled/snowblowed all the snow from the platform onto the adjacent tracks. I'd guess most of the snow that ended up on the platform, came from the platform lol
There ya go, Don! Covered wagons forever
Here at home, in the railroad mayhem capital of the world.
