Default best way to stop a train

I am not sure if that will stop a moving freight train?

I don't think it's a permanent solution. The rails show no sign of wear, and many of the spikes are loose.

It is a really good shot! I have seen only a few of these train stoppers, but most of them have has a small wooden plack on a post in the center of the track about 10 feet out, stating no trespassing...You know to give the engineer a little warning..LOL

I always preferred to tie a blond across the tracks myself.
