Remarks & Notes 
I've heard train crews say if you do this job long enough you inevitably will hit somebody. I guess the same logic can be applied to railfanning. From what I gathered from the scanner chatter, the man was walking down the tracks with his back to the train and never saw it coming. Last I hear on the news, the man was in critical condition in a local hospital still waiting to be identified.
