Well, because of a train accident occured near Athens last night I am adding the poll!
Read full story!


Train Driver Recovered Dead

user posted image

Rail tragedy on Wednesday in Menidi, Athens. Passenger train 504 en route to Thessaloniki derailed a little after 11pm, after colliding with a parked freight train. One of the train drivers was killed in the accident and the other is in critical condition. Another 30 passengers were lightly injured, while seven of those were admitted to KAT and Evangelismos hospitals. Fire Department Chief Andreas Kois had earlier expressed fears that one of the drivers was probably dead, since he was trapped in a particularly difficult spot and was not responding to the firefighters’ calls. Train 504, which had departed from Larissis Station at 11am, collided with the freight train, also en route to Thessaloniki, which was stopped at a sidetrack. The causes of the accident remain unknown. The collision resulted in the engine and the two first carriages of the passenger train derailing.

Investigating the Causes


The circumstances of the collision between the passenger and the freight train remain unknown.

The accident occurred near the Athenian suburb of Menidi, at the intersection of Konstantinoupoleos and Aristotelous Streets. The passenger train consisted of eight carriages, with two of them carrying vehicles, while 130 passengers were onboard.

Eyewitnesses reported that the train had built up its speed at the time of the accident.

Firefighters rushed to the accident scene to recover the trapped passengers and ambulances transferred the wounded to hospital. In addition, the police, and OSE (Greek Rail Company) experts and technicians also arrived on site to pull away the derailed carriages and reinstate the train routes.

Thursday’s train schedules to Thessaloniki are being disrupted, since only one of the lines is operating.

Driving is a way of travelling where you have the least chances than any other mean to have an accident you're not responsible for...

Well I couldn't vote, you didn't have my choice , all of the above. It is like this, if your time is up sitting in bed isn't safe, that is when the choice vehicle comes crashing through you house , and we DID have that here soon after 9/11. So the fact remains that when it is time to go it's time to go. When it's in a car, well it's just you. When you miss the train bus or plane, andit crashes, you were not slated in for that trip. But when a whole plane load goes, it was just too many at once.

OK ... the boring answer is the Jet plane

The cool answer is ... traveling in my day or night dreams ... I go and do anything anytime anywhere ... I sometimes have me some crazy dreams ... I always snap out of the dreams eventually, all safe and sound ... imagine that! default.tongue.gif

I voted car. I feel safer in my car when I am driving, but if someone else is driving, I'd rather be in the air *which I am TERRIFIED of flying*...so yeah :0)
