    You put the car up on a twin post hoist, insert jack stands then lower the rear post. Did it for 20 years or more myself. That way you can lower the rear axle down out of the way if needed. Or lower the axle right out of the car if that's what you want.

    Ok what's deal on this one? The Train hasn't even reached the road yet but there is the one car that's totaled. Can anyone enlighten me what really happened? :rolleyes:

  8. They probably backed the train up, to get it off the roadway.;)

    In '66 I was the last guy to work for the owner of a large shop on Indy's west side that had operated since the late '30s. He had a Weaver "Twin Post " lift like that one . It was so worn out that when a car was lifted to the top the posts would rock side to side about 4 inches . It leaked so bad the pit had oil over a foot deep in the bottom and we kept a bucket on a rope hanging on the wall to dip the oil out and pour it back in the tank ever couple of days .

    Two possibilities: This is not the train that hit the car on the tracks. Maybe a second train being held up as the situation is being investigated.
    Or maybe this the engine that hit the car and has backed up. This is doubtful in my opinion as if a train hit that car it probably would be far down the track.
    All that said the car is still on the track and I would think after getting hit that hard it would have been pushed off of the tracks.

    Or... given that it's hard to stop a freight train in 50 ft, the auto could have been pushed from the previous RR / road crossing - given all that damage. Either way, the loco in the photo is probably the one involved. As in all our accident reports, let us hope the folks in the car survived. Gary
