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.

Go on, raise the flag, I got stars in my eyes...I'm in love with her and I won't apologize.

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.
