100s of tons of steel vs. one of nature's fiercest phenomena. This apparently occurred on 7Jan2008 on the Union Pacific railroad near Harvard IL.
How was this recorded? As one of the youtube comments explains:
All American locomotive cabs have on-board video recording equipment fitted. This is due to the fact that there are so many grade crossing violations by cars and trucks. The railroad companys [sic] got pissed off with these retards trying to sue the RR company hence the camera's [sic]. This one was obviously left running in the trailing loco's cab.

More HereLalu is a happy man: happy to have risen to become rich, beloved, and reviled all over India; happy that a grateful nation credits him with whipping its beleaguered rail system into profitability; and happy that he’s managed to do all this and somehow stay out of jail. Under his leadership, Indian Railways has gone from bankruptcy to billions in just a few years. When Lalu presented his latest budget to Parliament on February 13, he bragged, "Hathi ko cheetah bana diya" ("I have turned an elephant into a cheetah"). What’s his secret?
“Cow dung,” he says. “I have 350 cows, including bulls. Cow dung—no need of gas.” Everyone tells me about Lalu’s “rustic common sense,” though I’m unsure how burning manure for fuel has made Indian trains suddenly run profitably. But his point is a broad one, about systems efficiency and country wisdom and resourcefulness. “Railways is like a Jersey cow. If you do not milk it fully, it gets tenail,” a swollen and infected udder. Milk every last drop out of Indian Railways, Lalu told his subordinates, and it will prosper.
...“My mother has taught me to take the bull by the horns,” Lalu said. “If you try to take it by the tail, it will kick you in the ass.” “No other minister could summon the courage to do this,” Kumar explains.
