    After reading McGilliCutty's thread on stuck trucks http://forum.zealot.com/t158364/ I felt that I just had to share this that I received in an email from a friend.

    Here is a truck driver looking for a job. Know anyone hiring? hamr

    According to the person who sent this, the driver has only been in the U.S. a few months. He had missed his turn by Billings MT. And figured he could go over the hill and continue on the road. :genius2:

    Apparently he didn't know there were rail tracks on top of the grade which doesn't matter, he'd be stuck anyhow..... :flush1: wall1 wall1

    The truck owner figures he had to hit the angle at over 55 miles an hour in order to make the top. :eek: If you look close at some of the pictures you will see that it is only when the trailer pinched the rear tires of the truck that the truck stopped...... :|


    I love the second picture that shows the tracks going through the field to get there. What a genius!!! :cry: :cry: :razz: :razz:

    Luckily no trains were coming. Wouldn't that be a first, train hits truck, but nowhere near a crossing. :eek: :eek:

    Well, I know it's a bit of a 'thing' between USA and Canada, but I think it goes beyond a joke when you start building
    tank-traps.

    I don't even see how he made it that far! I'd think that the whole rig would have pinched up at the bottom. Incredible! Whuuuuuuuuuut was he thinkin'!!!!!!!!

    I can't believe anyone would try driving up a steep hill like that!!! I see telegraph poles...you'd think that might have been a clue to the rails on the top!

    I think Classic Metal Works and Woodland Scenics are now hard at work on the Moron's Rig on the Rails mini-scene.

    Do you think he went "Ooops", when he crossed the first set of rails?

    It's the 3rd and 4th shots that seal the deal. How could you possibly see that in front of you and think you could "make it".
