The train was not able to come to a stop until Bonnieville.

A northbound train came to a stop in Hart County after the conductor was notified there was a deceased man on top of the locomotive.
Kentucky State Police confirmed that a 28-year-old male was struck in the head while standing on top of a moving CSX train somewhere near Bonnieville.
Police are not releasing the man’s name until the next of kin are notified.

You can get on top of grainers, but never stay on top of them too long. Any of them can rock heavily due to uneven tracks and force you off balance. Back when I rode a local to Waycross, I know the grainers I was on was rocking, so I stayed right where I was and never climbed to the top.

There are two traveler schools of thought: grab the pack and go, and extensive preparatory research....You can guess which one I'm buried in, at the moment....

Welcome!!!!
So I had a bunch of free Metrolink tickets, so yesterday first I took Coaster from San Diego to Oceanside, then used them to go all the way from Oceanside to Simi Valley (covering 150 miles in a day). I decided to stay with my SO again a couple of days as I came down pretty sick with cold and also need to buy some gear for the record breaking cold in CA. Soon enough I’ll head to Ventura and hitch from there!
Just over a month and a half until I plan to hit the road here in New Zealand. Figuring out what I need to store and what I need to sell. Anyone thats currently travelling got an Instagram? Looking to follow some fellow misfits in the mean time!
