    This happened along "Mud Alley" in Richmond, Texas in the early 1950s. The truck was hit at the previous crossing and pushed to the next street. The Sunset Limited was probably only going much less than 30 MPH at impact but took that long to stop.

    Now this one was staged, rather poorly I might add.

    Angélique aka Angel (only by name)

    Don't see much of the lighthouse, but by landscape and the green roofed cottages and the cable trolley rail line going down to the beach I would say it's the Cape Capricorn Light on Curtis Island.

    Cheers,
    Angel

    Hells Bells WTF?

    Hi Trow,
    no the content is blocked as the page loads OK and I can view ALL global video standards as I have the codecs and apps to play but not the videos on that page... Easy to do as many blockages due to copyright issues for the Olympics - some regions are blocked like some channels that broadcast on the net with "Olympic certified brands" forbidding other brands from display - stupid US copyright laws...
