Of course here in Australia the eagles take on bigger (and more expensive) prey.

Iron ore trains in the Pilbara (where there are no hazards other than kangaroos and they won't bother a train that's 10km long) have just gone driverless at a cost of something like $500million. Tricky problem as they have to run at the right speed to load the carriages. On the other hand there's no stations and no passengers. And yes, it was done mainly due to unions (i.e. to cut costs)
