First World Problem?
I feel so fortunate to live a city in the first world, a place where things just work, a place where we are safe and protected by the rules put in place by authorities. We have many health and safety rules and regulations and they are worth the bother the sometimes cause us, because they protect us. So, I would assume what is in this video is perfectly safe. It must be a trick of a camera.
I feel inclined to blame Metro, our private train company, but no. These are government owned rail tracks, and they are responsible for them, no matter how they might like to pass on blame. That it is a single track is a disgrace in itself.
Rod Williams, the maker of the short video has many fine Australia wide train videos on You Tube.
