Thomas the Tank Engine lobotomised by fat (remote) controller


Unless you can detect the person from 5 km's away they are going to be a red smear on the tracks. Those trains need a lot of distance to stop.

The sad truth is even if there is a driver present they cannot stop in time if they see a person on the tracks.
