Trains can kill

A new train company, Brightline, began service in Florida a week or so ago. Things have not gone well. Three people have been hit by a train, two fatally. They tried to cross the tracks before the train came. It appears as though the accidents were caused by people not realizing how fast the trains were moving. Prvious trains went at 30 to 40 miles per hour, Brightline can reach speeds of up to 79 mph south of West Palm Beach and up to 110 mph through the Treasure and Space coasts.
