So you’ve dropped something onto the railway tracks – your hat perhaps?
Bottle of Passion Pop?
‘Caution wet floor’ sign?
Collection of Formplex weatherboard samples?
Well – don’t run across the tracks.
Chase down station staff.
They’ve got a long grabby arm.
Ready to fish it back up.
I remember a few years ago a railfan attaching their GoPro camera to the side of a steam train doing the rounds of suburban Melbourne, only for it to fall off and land on the tracks. Presumably they found the camera, because they were able to share the footage.
Another unlucky railfan had a similar experience on a tram tour around Melbourne – holding their mobile phone out the window recording video along the St Kilda light rail the tram brushed past a lineside tree, knocking it out of their grasp and down onto the ballast below.
Moral of the story – use a camera strap!
