Amtrak Lincoln Service coming into Springfield let me stand on tracks

Granted tracks man is standing on aren’t ones Amtrak Lincoln Service will be coming in on – they are right next to those – double tracked. But technically this is trespassing. At very least it is unsafe. If interested in viewing train coming in – there is a safe area behind guardrail to do so.

Many Amtrak passengers do something similar at station. Even though you can easily see down tracks in either direction from platform behind yellow line.

Unfortunately people have lost their lives in our area do to train strikes. Maybe they weren’t paying attention, wanted to end things or tried to beat train. Try not to become a statistic.

It sounds like engineer that day did give a horn blast hello.
