An in-depth look into the emotional toll level crossings accidents can have on train drivers. Alf Wilson is possibly the most unlucky person in existence when it comes to these accidents.

My friend Paul just retired last year; as a conductor, he had 15 fatal accidents during his career of about 40 years.  He said it is one of the hardest things to deal with as a railroader.

My mom works in the office for a local security company, and said one time that one of their guards used to be a CN engineer, he quit after seeing the two small heads pop up in the back seat of a car that ran a crossing that he only very narrowly missed. That was enough for him.
