    Train going through a tornado

    Trains now have cameras mounted and here is one facing the rear as a train passes through a tornado. At about 40 seconds the rain starts and it goes from bad to worse from there.

    my only question for you engineers out there... Why does the camera face backwards?

    I wondered this too and then thought maybe it was a set up with more than one engine and this one was facing the other way like you often see???

    Was he blowing the whistle at the tornado as if telling it to get out of the way?

    Re: Train going through a tornado

    That was ridiculous to watch it come off the tracks like that. I was expecting it to get really bad there at the end there though (trying not to ruin it for those who haven't watched it yet).

    Re: Train going through a tornado

    pretty cool video, but like others said, there should of been a front camera too.

    Re: Train going through a tornado

    Very cool, and yeah, I was wondering just how violent that was going to get. An odd note.....I played this in media player, and shut everything down, and the damn train sounds from the video are still coming through my speakers. Weird.

    Re: Train going through a tornado

    2 things:
    1) Notice the tops of the trees how they go from calm to breezy to windy to freaking wild.
    2) At about 1:26 would be one of those times in your life where you yell, "OH ****!!" and then poop your pants.
