This besides being a continuing issue happened at one of the two worst times of the day delaying 3 different trains. First making the Starlight No. 11, 3&1/2 hrs late to LA, Surfliner 792 at least 2&1/4 hrs late to San Diego and Surliner 777 over 3 hrs late into SLO.

Suicide by train--if that's what this was--is a traumatizing thing to do to its innocent engineer and anyone else who has no choice but to witness or deal with the carnage. Trains are like oil tankers, aircraft carriers and all very large moving things. They cannot stop on a dime. Although it's rarely a good idea, I have no quarrel with anyone who does away with himself if they make a point of considering others their penultimate act.

Really inconsiderate of people to kill themselves in public places. Kinda spoils everyone's day. But seriously, it just points up our failure to deal realistically with mental illness. Homelessness, public crimes, and worst case, murder or suicide keep happening, and not much is being done to help a lot of people in distress. Rather than trains to nowhere or carbon credits, I'd like to see serious money devoted to mental health.

I would never want to go that way it freaks me out just thinking about it maybe because of this friend I had while growing up who loved to play beat the train in his car I rode with him all the time and we had some serious close calls..I almost got hit when drunk too thing about Taking the train though is it's quick according to some who really would not know unless they already did it and usually people do not survive though I have heard of acouple survivors..Mental Health, there are many suicidal people calls everyday in our county within 24 hours of the train vs pedestrian call there was another suicide in another part of town Debbie Downer here I think it's going to get worse Mental health is much needed.
