Very sad. Either a suicide or someone was trespassing in order to get where they were going quicker. My condolences to the family.

no person animal or vehicle wins in a battle against a train ever. I used to walk the tracks years ago as a kid up north as a means of travel along an open area but was no such thing as walkmans, earbuds or cellphones back then. You could hear a train approaching. Tracks click, birds scatter and the horn is unmistakable. This is another unfortunate situation.
