HUGE F***ing deal.
#1 The crew up front can't see you, and have no idea a bunch of nit-wits are doing something very illegal.
#2 slack action, when that train moves, It will take up an impressive amount of slack between cars, and do it quickly, that flat car could jump several feet with allmost no warning. Anyone near the end of the car is in serious trouble.
#3 say you are on the car, and the train takes off, and you manage to stay on. Know how often a road freight stops?? Not the local, the manifest freight. Might be 100+ miles before you see the ground again.
This is exactly why Operation Lifesaver exists.
I have a white PX-10, a Green Dawes Galaxy and an Orange Falcon, now I'm done.
