Off topic: Sometimes I take this train

Click here if the video is not showing up in the RSS feed.

Night before last I spent three hours on the train ride home. The video above shows the reason for the delay. The train I took that night was backed up and delayed while they sorted out the mess in Hinsdale. Had I left work a few minutes earlier I would have been on the second train, i.e., the one that caused the minivan to burst into flames. Would have been pretty exciting/scary. Thank goodness no one was hurt.

    Man – I WAS on that train. I didn't feel anything like an impact – just the way too sudden slowing down the train did. Then started smelling something burning. I was on the wrong side (and up top) so didn't see what happened but it was not fun.
