Even when the engineers don't sound their horns and whistles, it's pretty hard to NOT hear a train approaching. These are not silent trains like Disneyland's monorail. Stay off the tracks -- "I can make it" = DEATH!
Let's tunnel the trains already! Geesh.
GET USED TO PEOPLE GETTING KILLED!
I worked with John in TX and am devastated to hear about this tragedy. I can see his bright smile now. One of the most caring, pleasant individuals I've ever met. He will be greatly missed. <3
Hard not to hear a train approaching? How about looking both ways before crossing the tracks? If you can't see that the way is clear in both directions, then do not cross the tracks. "I will use basic common sense" = LIFE.
A part of the ITP Community,
John will be missed.
A Tragic ending to a beautiful person.
I will miss his Big Blue Eyes
Please refrain from your judgements.... You have no idea what it was like in the last moments of his life. Show a little respect
Bless you John. You're still here in spirit. PEACE
I can't believe Dulaney is gone. Not only worked with him in Tx, but he stayed best friends with my husband and I, He will be missed greatly. It's hard to believe he's gone. A beautiful person he was. Can anyone tell me what happened? Got an email from him on my birthday the 23rd, sent him one on his the 1st. What Happened? I don't understand.
You will be missed at the Ranch, You were part of the Ranch family and you will always be in our hearts>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
I will miss you forever, my heart will always have a hole where you filled it. You were a great friend and an even better person. I love you, John.
He might have been the most wonderful of dudes, but his death was meaningless and quite stupid. He had to climbed at least one fence to get to the trackway, so it was not like he didn't know what he was doing. Then not look and get hit by a train.
Think about the conductor who has to live with causing the guy's death.
More than 6 years later, and I still remember how you lit up any room you walked into with your smile and your warmth. You will always be in my heart, and I wish you peace where you are.
I'll see you on the other side, my friend...
