Remarks & Notes 
The ultimate street running? Just south of Greymouth, New Zealand at a location known as Camerons, NZ highway 6 and the KiwiRail Hokitika Industrial Line share a unique single lane/track thru-truss bridge across the Taramakau River. There are no lights governing movement and no crossing flashers to alert of a pending train. As the train approached the bridge with horn sounding, two cars raced ahead of it and crossed in front of the KiwiRail X6D milk train from Hokitika. The motorists are seen in this view as the train's lights illuminate the rail ahead of them on the evening of October 22. Hi def (4K) video of the Camerons, NZ KiwiRail bridge crossing...https://youtu.be/mxS-pMvd2DM
