Rumor has it a Train crash will be shown... showing dangers at a railroad crossing, despite the Cumbrian crash.

"We are going ahead as planned with tonight's programme which includes an item on the dangers at level crossings"

Apparently an 170-tonne locomotive hitting a people carrier at 70mph on a line in rural Lincolnshire.

Just Under 2 Hours fans...

This was supposed to be shown 3 weeks ago, but they pulled it that time because of a level crossing incident. Good to see they aren't cow-towing this time, the dangers need to be shown!

Great episode, laughed for a lot of it! That car got totally destroyed by that train, and thats just one carriage too. A usual train would have even more weight behind it.

Railway crossings should have spike strips coming up when they're on, even before the barriers come down. At least that way people know they wouldnt get away with it.

Or just red light cameras. Nice and simple, 250 fine and 12 points. Didnt think that top gear was all that great, wasnt concentrating tho. Thought they over dramatised some of the tractor stuff a bit...
