My GrandFather, my Dad and all my uncles worked for Erstern Pacific/UP all their lives. Railroads are dangerous places. My Uncle Albert was killed at work when a box car door fell on him, my dad almost got killed when an idiot mechanic defeated the deadman switch and the engine crashed into his office, destroying the WP concrete offices and his workmate got accidentally COUPLED—-Joe was alive to call his wife and kids and to dictate his will. He died 41seconds after they decoupled him

Lessons Learned:
1. Always Eye 👁 Ball ⚽️ the Rollbys
2. Never go under the cars to cross
3. Do not walk between gaps in train cars
4. To test if a train is about to leave, throw a pebble against a Tank Car. The customer will lose money on gasoline tank cars because gas ⛽️ will spoil after 30 days!!! Filled tank cars have priority.
5. Never completely close a box car—closed box cars get locked!!!
6. Never hop trains drunk or stoned—-wait until you are onboard.
7. Never break a seal on a sealed box car—-that’s a FELONY!!!
8. Try to carry a camera and stand with you. FOMIES rarely get hit with Tresspassing charges.
RIP Strobe Dah HOBO!!!

That is one of the dumbest things I've ever read.

It's almost as dumb as
>Joe was alive to call his wife and kids and to dictate his will. He died 41seconds after they decoupled him
But not quite.

Train hopping is not something that we encourage on 1chan. We tend to have a focus on safety because several of us have worked on trains at some point. This is not the forum for sharing tips on how to catch trains. Please don't do this again.
