I didn't see that post. I do recall listening to a radio program some time ago that was talking about train engineers, and they were relating the same. It was awful. I remember one engineer related how he was haunted by an incident with a teenage boy that had his headphones on, and was just walking down the tracks with his back to the train. The engineer thought the kid might have known and was committing suicide, but he could never be sure.
