Maybe she suffered from dementia, hardly stupid then is it!

 

Actually the replies are totally in keeping with the modern trend to slam old people for whatever reason can be found and to care not a jot about human life. Sad really.

Well yes you know I never considered that

I hope I never forget what a train is when approaching a level crossing

Hi,the weight thing was only a over exaggeration,but i bet it felt like that when it hit her.that's if she felt anything at all.I dont know what sort of train it was,Freight or passenger.Ive seen some trains carrying huge great pipes of metal.Ive seen trains carrying trains. Sadly, i was sacked from the circus,due to my inability as an 'I guess your weight' performer.So,i really wouldn't rely upon my estimation of the train that killed the old girl. If you ever find out,i would be very interestead to know.:thumbsup:

Actually what annoys me somewhat is somebody who edits a post after you have replied to it

I will now reply to your two line edit

 

I dont agree with it in any shape or form, you are just making it up aren't you

Some people need more than their fair share of luck though

There must have been seconds between me doing my edit and you posting, I didn't read your reply before editing.

 

And no, I'm not making it up, I'm quite serious.

RIP Old lady. 

This and so many other needless deaths in Thailand every day, caused by an endemic inability to obey the law...

Deepest sympathy goes to the family.  No one needs to go like this. 

We can all armchair quarterback every situation we read about or see.  We were not part of it nor do we know the exact state of mind or thoughts that were going through her head.

The train was undamaged and later continued on its way to Hat Yai city.

amazing trains are sturdy build

The loco step up to the cab looks a bit out of shape , but so do I but I bet I am a lot older than the loco .

Exactly how much evidence do you need to assess a situation, this is as clear cut as you will see

Whatever her state of mind, or her immediate thoughts just before her self inflicted demise, did not include self preservation in any sense

Perhaps a lady of her advanced age was deaf, so didn't hear the train or warnings ?   R.I.P.

You use your eyes not your ears to see the barriers are down, and then to negotiate your way around the other moto cyclists

Any other bright suggestions
