Train killings?? pretty sure these are suicides and if not by train, then by bridge, or pills or worst, by mass shottings/cop suiside. No not being heartless just being realistic, Friends, listent to your friends -- family, know your family members or try to -- to the best that you can. So sad to hear a human being felt so alone it could not relate and get help from a fellow human being. So so sad.

Article never used the words "train killings." The way you worded it, it could also imply that the train was killed.

It's one thing to want to kill yourself; it's another to subject an innocent engineer into a lifetime of regret after watching and re-living the horror of killing some one when there was nothing he could do to stop the train. Pray for peace for BOTH the victims here.
