On the Fackler incident, his foot was caught between the train and the loading station while the train was pulling in. Not necessarily his fault, but maybe the adult he was riding with? What part of "keep your hands, arms, feet and legs inside the vehicle at all times" was not understood here?Originally Posted by Frogberto
Just my .02 on that one.
Anyhow, love your posts, and I have a tip to add: Much as it's fun to ride in the afternoon because of the speed, riding after dark is also a very different experience. Friends used to tell me this and I didn't understand why until I did it. Everything you're supposed to be looking at (AAs, etc.) is lit up at night, and when all around is dark, your eyes are automatically drawn to the lights. I saw details on BTMRR after dark that I never knew were there in the daytime.
