    Sure about that? Intriguing video, but as literature more of a coloring book than a text book. Still, if taken as documentary, pay special attention to exactly what the narrator said (at 3:59 to...

    We know that. It's just that the cab signal system cannot continue to read the signal that the train just passed, since that signal went to stop as soon as the train passes it!
