Mercy this corridor of railway sure has seen a lot of deaths. I too feel for the engineers. I bet their stomach turns to knots when they get this route.

I heard the Engineer say he wanted to be alone for a few minutes after the incident. It's sad but there is nothing they can do about it, it's one of those jobs you love and hate the things you hate you have no control over like someone with a weapon advancing on a cop with a gun...

That's so sad. Really terrible thing to do to the poor train engineer and the other people on the train. Better ways to leave the planet.

Surely there is another way to commit suicide. The poor train engineer is traumatized when he blows and blows his whistle and people let him kill them. There have been several here in Carpinteria over the years. RIP Ms. Enick. So sad to feel there is nothing worth living for.
