Whenever you are going to meet a train, or board one, be sure to call and see the time it will pull into the station. Saves waiting, sometimes a long time, for it to arrive. There can be any number of reasons for being late.

Was the deceased wearing headphones and listening to music or talking to someone via headset? I see many joggers doing this, oblivious to traffic and other dangers that their sense of hearing would alert them to. I discovered how big a role hearing plays as I lost the hearing in one ear. It's so important, I've had to buy hearing aids. (Don't get me started on the cost--must be made of platinum.)

This is a bad situation not just for those obviously involved, but also for the thousands of people affected by yet another delayed train. It would be cost prohibitive to fence all the tracks, but jeez, if this get any more frequent, Amtrak will have to figure out a solution. I am sad for the person killed, and for the train personnel.

I saw the train stopped near the Mission Street exit around 2:30 pm today, thought it was odd. Not sure if it normally stops there?

Kids have been playing chicken with the train near Mission street if they keep it up they will lose sooner or later.

Correction, it's Surfliner 763 to San Luis and at 1:15pm is 1 hr 51 min. late. Read the wrong late train initially.
