geesus, look at the size of the rails compared to over here, thats more shocking!
That's the first thing I noticed. I guess it's due to the heavier passengers. ;)

Well the barrierman is clearly showing his red flag, whats the problem?
The rails look like the same as English flatbottom

O O O it might be on "worlds Scarest police chases" with sheriff "wots-his-name" doing the commentry, over exagerating everything.

Maybe it's just me but the flag appears to be attached to the truck, not being held up by a crossing keeper? Also the barriers are down, so if the truck was indeed "doing at least 40" as stated in the photo remarks then the driver must have driven round them.

It is attached to the truck. I can only assume the train was moving and that they escaped by a whisker, as the caption doesn't say otherwise and that's the impression I get.

I saw a photo on that site of a bus trying that, the driver of which was rather less fortunate with his/her attempt :roll: :x

I don't think the loco is moving as there are no lights and the exhaust is light and going straight up. I suspect the car has flags to indicate that the line is closed at that point, or its staged. Nothing appears to be moving :?:

Remarks: Look at the face of the passenger in the truck. Also notice that the truck has a handicap parking permit on the mirror. He passed 4 cars waiting at the crossing and I would guess he was doing at least 40 across the tracks
