I am sitting on 66 just short of Providence and the crew announced that there has been a trespasser strike. They were non specific as to whether we hit the person or another train did, but I expect either way we will be stopped for a while.

Apparently we hit the person, who survived.

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that works.

There's similar incident at PVD involving another train. It must be a good day for an ill-fated shortcut.

They say laughter is the best medicine. Obviously they never posted on AU.
