I think they had a front tire blowout and didn't accelerate quick enough.

Just jump in the toad and throw it in reverse. It should pull it right off the tracks.

They didn't get it unhooked in time. After the train passed, the next photo shows the toad flung up in the wires.

Well Gang,
Something's not quite right. I'm having a bit of a hard time believing this photo. I mean, if you look at it, it's a DIRT situation, in all directions. WHAT would that coach, pulling that toad, be doing on THAT dirt road or, rail way access parallel road in the first place? Now, many of us with very similar rigs have traversed dirt roads in our quest for a campground, temp parking place due to a break down, etc. But, in all reality, do you know how much momentum it would take to get that rig, with that kind of weight, THAT FAR up into the air and hanging in that position?

And, I don't see any RAMPING of any dirt that would indicate a crossing of those tracks. I've motorcycle ridden along many-a-mile of rail road tracks and, if and when there's any form of even a make-shift crossing of the tracks, there's all kinds of signs, notification, indicators that this is a CROSSING. Pretty much don't see even one of those indicators.

IS this a real situation? Well, to me, there's way too much wrong to say yes.
Scott
