When we’re talking best case scenario on a train ride–aka maximum reliability, speed, convenience and comfort–we’re probably talking about the TGV in France or the DB Bahn in Germany. 18-year old Kobzarro–that’s an alias, obviously–out of Russia has a completely different set of requirements because she’s not concerned about riding in the trains, she wants to ride on top of them. The “rising star of Russia’s growing community of trainsurfers – a movement that is sweeping the country and attracting hundreds of young daredevils going out of their way for a rush of adrenaline” prefers to take her trips at up to 155 mph on top of the trains instead of inside of them. It seems absolutely insane–it is absolutely insane–but something about watching it her perform on video makes it seem a little less crazy.
