What a horrible, horrible decision.
Even when we shut the tracks down for something we're doing on or near them, we don't park any vehicles on the tracks and we keep a close eye out in case one of the trains sneaks by.No one has greater love than this, to lay down ones life for ones friends - John 15:13

That was a beautiful truck too. I have seen it being driven aound the SW Detroit area. I'm sure that even with union protection, there is a new opening at the DFD.Insert witty comment and disclaimer here.

Wow! I cannot imagine the thought process of that driver. Like somebody above said, there is no reason to ever park on or near a track, even though you think it's closed.*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)

I don't think he will be a driver much longer, he's going to be sent in to fight the fire from now on.
