      This is a post involving someone getting killed in what appears to be a horrible way, and the best you can do is “first! Ha” ??? Sick.

    Amazing. I think everywhere, when there’s a wreck like this, people gather around, waiting for a head to roll out or something. It’s like people just can’t wait to see a dead, mangled body.

    When they do see it, they talk about how gruesome it was.

    russian transport…

    Damn, what an accident… It reminds me from when I was in Odessa 7 years ago, from the window of the tram I was in I saw another one going on high speed while spitting fire and fountain of sparks from its pantographs. And it was these same old machine. They should really replace them with new safer ones…

  5. Orignal Kirov says:

    Ukraine can’t afford replacing them. The nation is utterly broke and poor.

  6. DouglasUrantia says:

    There are a lot of inexpensive old buses for sale that they could use instead of these antique trams.

    The battery will run dead of he doesn’t turn that light off!

    How it happened: the tramway car was in the shop for repair and should change from one track to another. When the car was running in direction of the exit of the shop, it lost the battery voltage making the brake inoperatable.

    “it lost the battery voltage making the brake inoperatable.”

    Nope. Operator lost control of vodka bottle, making the train inoperable.

    • Cracker says:

      It should have been made “Fail-Safe” which means the battery is required to REMOVE the brakes. If the battery dies the brakes turn on. This means the tram stops where it is, but it won’t run away and kill anyone. Air-Brakes on trucks work this way.

        No one is going to read this. But incase someone else reads through 300 and some pages of archives as I have…

        Generally in such things where power or air is required for emergency brakes they work in reverse of what you think. Air or Electric turns off the brake, when either is absent the brakes turn on.

        In the case of an air brake, air is applied to turn off at say 30psi. When 29psi is reached the brakes will apply.
