I sure as hell hope the train crew are being paid enough to live in the area, and not in the back of their cars or a camper. 

Anyway, here's some concerns raised by the crews regarding safety.

Indeed true Michael.  I recall when it really got bad on JPBX in Palo Alto, the only that calmed it down was stationing a security guard at a couple of the most troublesome grade crossings. 

These incidents bring to mind pages 19 -22 of the latest SMART report.

The unfortunate thing is, SMART is powerless to stop it. They can take measures, but it will keep happening. I am a proponent of commuter systems that are elevated and separated from the public. It keeps the down and out from easy access and there are no crossings to try and beat.
