  1. The whole stretch of train tracks from Woodmen Road south along Mark Dabling Blvd, Sinton Rd, and into downtown is wide open to the public. I’m surprised there aren’t more incidents involving pedestrians, whether intentional or accidental.

    1. I guess you haven’t yet figured out how to “Reply” to another comment . . .
      You’re correct that we can’t stop every bad thing from happening. But I’ve seen many kids on those tracks playing “chicken” with the trains. That’s sufficient reason to consider some sort of fencing along the tracks like happens in most other civilized places.
      And I’ve already lived a very productive life, thank you. Any clue about yours yet?
