I'm guessing it was no longer in use? Not a lot of urgency to get him out by the looks.

From how shiny the rails are, I would say they are still being used.

Take it to the limit, one more time!

I'm a railroader and this was just plain stupid. Live track and messing around = a good way to die.

x2. I live near RR tracks and most wouldn't believe the stupid shit people do on them. Road closed at least once a season for a car who unsuccessfully tried racing a billion pound locomotive. Dumb.

Shiny rail = in use. Every time.
Most people think you can hear a train but the fact is most of the time you don't.
Very dangerous and unforgiving.

Another railroader here. You'd think that a 200+ ton locomotive would make a lot of noise but they are spooky quiet rolling up on you.

That's what I was thinking.

"Hey, look, a railroad tie just dangling precariously from the tracks over a chasm. One mile an hour should do the trick here."

Idiot.

Used to ride my sled right down the middle. Had to stop and lift it out if a train came. Wasn't very fun.
