    Every train driver will hit atleast one person in their career, some hit more. They're a tough bunch although some are too traumatised to ever get back in the cab. Inadvertently taking somebodies life is a trauma that will stay with them for the rest of theirs. I used to want to be a train driver as a child when all the other children wanted to be footballers or astronauts. My dream was broken when my grandad told me about this shit. Got so much respect for drivers who do it anyway.

    Was this definitely a suicide or is everyone jumping to conclusions?
