Oh holy crap
When two trains collide, they are transported to the Blue Dimension.

TOOT-TOOT HERE COMES THE PAIN TRAIN!
The trains crashed Windows.
What is the sound of thousands of pounds of metal crashing into each other at speed - here is the answer.

I keep hearing gunshots through the first part of this video. Clearly, this train wreck was caused by outlaws.
Someone should work in the "Gomez and his trains" scene from The Addams Family.
So this is what it's like when worlds collide.
ow my balls
I want to know exactly what the engineer is thinking at that point. He probably saw the other train at least five minutes ago, so he's gotten through the 'Oh crap!" phase. He's just trying to brake and hope the other guy's doing the same.
He's probably running down to the other end of the train.
They hit so hard they clipped out of the universe.

It's like the end of the Sopranos. Kinda.

-00:24 The engineer of the other train does a quick exit stage right onto the berm.
At approximately 5:51 a.m. PDT, June 14, 2006, an eastbound BNSF freight train M-RICBAR1-13 (Train #1) struck a westbound BNSF unit train U-SBDPKC1-11
(Train #2) head-on at the East Kismet Siding, Kismet (Madera County), California, Stockton Subdivision, milepost 1024.5. Track speed in the area is 55 mph for
freight and 40 mph at both ends of the Kismet Siding. The method of operation is Traffic Control System/Centralized Traffic Control and is controlled by a dispatcher
in San Bernardino, California.
Speed of Train #1 at impact was 22 mph, while Train #2's speed was 38 mph. Three of the seven locomotives on Train #1 derailed along with two tank cars (one
non-placarded, one placarded FLAMMABLE); one placarded tank car with FLAMMABLE GAS was knocked off its center pin but did not derail. No hazardous
materials were released and there was no evacuation ordered. All four of the locomotives on Train #2 derailed as did 14 loaded hopper cars of cement. Train
speeds were verified from event recorder downloads of the lead locomotives.
All crew members from both trains sustained non life-threatening injuries; one required an extended hospital stay.
Damages were estimated at: equipment, $4,932,528; track and structures, $392,000; no damage to signals.
Weather at the time of the accident was dawn, clear and a temperature of 52 degrees Fahrenheit.
The probable cause is the failure of Train #1 to comply with automatic block or interlocking signal displaying a stop indication.
Probable Cause and Contributing Factors
The conductor of the eastbound trainís use of cocaine may have contributed to the cause of the accident. However, the toxicological results do not allow a
conclusion concerning either possible impairment or when the drug was taken. The blood contains only the inactive metabolite, benzoylecgonine, which is not
normally associated with impairment. Neither impairment nor time of exposure to the drug can be derived from urine results.
The FRA determined the probable cause as the failure of Train #1 to comply with automatic block or interlocking signal displaying a stop indication.
