    WOW! Glad he survived and most definitely surprised that the train didn't completely win that encounter. Hopefully he will completely recover.

    He lived?

    Trains creep through that area. Not surprised he lived.

    I hope he gets better. Lets face it there is no reason that anybody should be hit by a train. It's not like they can sneak up on you.
