Amtrack Exercise

So you know you have good kids when they are willing to get up at 0700 on a Saturday morning to earn extra credit in school. I understand it to be an Amtrack train derailment exercise. The thing is four hours they never had cool stuff like that when I went to school...of course that was before trains... (and hospitals)

Gotta see pics or it didn't happen. It would be pretty cool to see a train derail and not get hurt in the process

So all it takes to derail a train is a bunch of smart kids!
We need the bumper sticker!
A friend of mine runs a land rover / range rover specialty repair shop. Based on his experience, they are capable of stopping anywhere, anytime, at any cost.

I don't know about the brakes, only their unreliability.
