Video: Catching a moving train in Burma
A Reddit user submitted this video of people catching a moving train in Yangon, Burma. Note that the train doesn't actually *stop* in the station. The first woman gets an assist from a train employee as well as a man on the ground, who then has to run down the platform - in flipflops, no less - and catch the train with several bags to carry before it leaves the station. The video uploader explains that the train was running two hours late and had no time to stop, and the man had seven bags to get onto the train in less than a minute.
Imagine Amtrak (or even your local commuter train) adopting this new policy for late trains. Think you are intrepid enough to jump on a moving train with luggage?
