4014 Chasers Injured In 6-Car Pileup
Author: walstib

A 6-vehicle pileup of motorists watching 4014 in southern Utah sent multiple people to hospitals on Saturday, according to St. George Today.

I was surprised I couldn’t find a topic for this story here on TO, so here it is.

This link will take you to the story:

Lawyers likely preparing to sue UP for making its engine and train an "attractive and public nuisance."

Looking at the picture in the article that is a road I wouldn't want to be doing a lot of speed on. Obviously someone thought it was a good idea

       Which is why I have NEVER followed one of these as much as I would have liked too. Too many totally ignorant and self-centered people out there. Looks like this one may have been on a dirt road too. Probably driving blind in the other guys dust and tooinvolved to think, "Hey, I can't see. Let's go faster maybe it will be better."

And that's why I like the interstate over yonder rather than the two-lane or dirt road trackside.  Luckily when I was young and stupid enough to play THAT game, I didn't own a car!

Someone passing and spun out on the gravel in front of the crowd he was passing. Dumb

Looks like a standard rush-hour wreck on any interstate here in Maryland; too many vehicles trying to occupy the same space.
The most serious injury may not have been seatbelted, but I wonder if things would have been worse with higher speeds.

On a gravel road where 35 is about tops fort safety and 4014 is going 45, your going to catch it?

State limit in Cali on dirt roads is 25, 35 on unmarked but paved, expect the CHP Cima to Kelso.

Out

I remember when 844 came to Oakland, CA.  While waiting, a "railfan" approached me.  Total nerd.  Nose picker, too--seriously.  Railroad shirt on, plus the hat.  Spoke like a nerd.  I moved away to avoid him and whatever he might have done when 844 came by, and since then, if I train watch, I prefer to be either alone, or with a more intelligent group.  I also refuse to wear some RR shirt and hat.

Instead of finding a decent good angle location with lighting to match and waiting for it to enter your frame we get a bunch of crap crab shots. Its not volume its quality.
