Bl..dy idiots who really are risking death! I have been at a rail fatality - very messy business indeed.

In fatal accidents I always feel really sorry for the driver as it must be a horrible experience.

Why aren't they allowed to be considered as responsible experienced train photographers!

After all they could have paid for a platform ticket and stood less than a meter from the moving train. Even touched it!

Good job football fans never go on the pitch!

I believe trespassing upon railway tracks by the general public IS  a criminal offence. No excuse for such behaviour.

Just the same as running across a railway crossing when the gates or barriers are blocking the public right of way. A criminal offence.

Google "Flying Scotsman Photos" - you can get all the photos you could want, some free of charge, that way nobody gets hurt, prosecuted, or held up.
(other search Engines available - pun intended).

Just a thought,
In these days of Diesel and Electrickery are there any
Water Towers or Troughs to refill a thirsty Steamer?

No they have to rendezvous with a bowser of water if there is no handy lineside hose, same with coal . A truck load and shovels if you dont have a loader of some kind.  Preserved lines usually have towers and coaling plants as they used to be. I doubt if troughs still exist.

What the news report fails to mention is that they had probably already exhausted all other options before hitting the dog

Even the owner said it was the right thing to do !!, had already bitten an officer, but must admit impressed by the fact they could not catch it but were able to run it down at speed..

This is what could have happened, or worse. Sounds like good initiative to me.

I guess we have to trust the decision of the guys on the scene and in possession of all the facts. I too favour pooches but you wouldn't catch me jumping into the sea at Blackpool to save one. Decisions can cost a life very easily.

I remember, years ago,  a solicitor on the radio said [about a court case]:

'I you weren't there, you don't know all the facts.'

Just some oaf doing a totally irresponsible stunt in a totally unsuitable spot and acting as a dumb role model for the weak of brain.  I have seen this kind of trick "performed" in a public car park by a less skilled driver who thought he wasn't until he proved it.  Luckily it was "only" somebody elses' car he bent, not a person.  Not too surprised to hear the Top Gear have retained the idiocy by gathering a new batch.
