It is a poor choice for a speedy exit, with no guarantee of winding up other than a stump, which is probably a far sight worse off than anyone contemplating doing so.
But, while we are on the subject lets talk about how to safely cross the tracks close to STANDING equipment.
Allow a minimum of 50 feet clearance. These things can move far, fast, with no warning. Never cross between equipment. Getting coupled up is a gruesome affair and not always instant death.
Never step on top of the rail. There is grease and or sludge all over the place and its a great way to slip and injure yourself, or hit your head on the other rail becoming incapacitated, be fore being decapitated by the next train along.
Rail wears over time. On the inside sometimes they "feather" off flash that is razor sharp. Bump it and you're looking at stitches at the least or severing and artery or vein.
Expect the movement of equipment on any track, in either direction, at any time, without warning.
Stay alert. Sometimes equipment is uncoupled in motion. Cars roll along in near silence and are on you before you know it.
