A...mazing.

Good to see a Track Safety Officer at work.

Funny how people see things differently. Scrolling down I see that someone has remarked "hes having a really bad day!". I'd say he's had the best day he's ever likely to have.

No it is real taken from cctv and he is not a stuntman, just a very lucky and perhaps foolish man who should have either carried a timetable or whoever he works for should have placed warnings to drivers of his presence

track safety officer who can't read a timetable.

Hopefully this is either fake, or someone got sacked putting him anywhere near a track at a busy time.

Wow what the hell was the guy doinging. If it is real then I hoped he was sacked. It would have given a near heart attack to the train drivers as well.

Amazing. At least there wasn't a live third rail!

I've worked on the track - and did have a few close shaves - but nothing like that, but it's incredible that he had no awareness of the train approaching -didn't hear it, or look.

its a fake
how and why did he jump 6ft backwards when it would have been easier to jump forward
and when he jumps the second time if you stop the video he jumps under the first train

Perhaps he was leaning backwards at the time also the force of the wind in front of the train? , I have stopped it and he  appears to miss both, it is debatable as to whether it is a fake, even his shadow is correct and moves with him all the time, if fake a very clever one

Two videos overlapped surely?  One with trains and one without.
