It is not only the weight of a train, it is also a train’s speed, which can result in a tragedy. Train accidents can cause massive amounts of damage to people and property
A train accident can result from both mechanical failure and human error. The accident can result in serious injury or death to a train passenger, or someone in the way of a moving train.
For example, a train conductor may be going too fast to negotiate a turn on the track. As a result of the excessive speed, the train can derail, resulting to death to many passengers.
Also, a train Grade Crossing Signal may fail. In these situations, a driver of a motor vehicle may cross a railroad track at the same time that a train is passing, resulting in a horrible collision.
Another example is a bus ignoring a stop sign at a train crossing resulting in collision.
Sadly, there are too many examples of train accidents, which cause unnecessary death and destruction. Wikipedia has a list of these accidents under “List_of_rail_accidents”
