Last moments

Be carefull when you are train-spotting

These few videos - from YOUTUBE - and © their respektive uploaders - CLEARLY show,
that trainspotters are prone to be caught in the moment - and also caught by another train.

Also watch my youtube playlist ➚ about railroad safety.

No lesson learned for that guy.

I wonder if he is dead or alive today.
