Carnage just like the rail thing.

IT LOOKS like a scene of carnage - but thankfully this "collision" involving a train at a level crossing was only firefighters taking part in disaster scenario training.

The exercise took place at the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service's National Training College in Cambuslang, near Glasgow.

Thirty trainees were sent to rescue casualties, with crews helping dozens of casualties fleeing from vehicles with many still trapped inside.

Red Cross volunteers played the role of the walking wounded and critically injured. And a fake severed leg added a gruesome touch.
