    The local paper is running a series on the railroad and the first three articles seem a little rough in asking for a company or big government to protect my neighbors from the dangers of walking down railroad trestles or the track wearing earphones.

    I DO believe rail fatalities need covered more. My take would be more to warn of the dangers and using the poor deceased as an example though, not to try to force the railroad to build fences or whatever.

    If you wanna read and write the author or editor, here are some links:

    In Maplewood, 'How many people does it take to get killed before they take action

    Hundreds die walking the tracks each year

    A mother killed, her son injured, yet the railroad refuses to whistle

    I wrote a letter to the editor complaining they were treating my neighbors in Maplewood and Ballwin like helpless idiots.

    Yeah, make RRs spend millions trying to protect stupid people from themselves. Sounds like a formula to take Amtrak from losing billions every year to trillions.
