    train vs wall question
    (https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=88811)

    Judging from the title alone, what is your reply to the thread?

    I say train. I don't have much faith in the integrity of a wall built by someone who didn't even notice the train tracks. :rolleyes:

    Ever see that footage of jet fighter vs. wall? They were testing walls for nuclear reactors to prevent people from flying planes into them.

    Anyway. The wall won.

    The wall will win if it is in the uk, even leaves on the track can stop our
    trains.

    If I'm the train, my response to the wall would probably be the same as the original poster, "sorry, wont do it again". :rofl:

    The wall might fall down. The train will definitely never run again.

    Edit: I don't have much faith in the integrity of a train bought by a railroad complany that would run their track into a wall. Did they at least paint a tunnel onto the wall?

    Edit: Of course, I don't actually know what kind of wall. Which little pig built this wall?

    To be honest, I just thought "Bang." (Actually, I thought "who in the bloody hell would build a wall over a train track, and then I thought "bang"".) I don't reckon there'd be an outright winner any more than if a kamikazee plane sunk a battleship.
