A railgun… Does it fire trains?

It fires birds of the family Rallidae. Do not underestimate the damage that can be done by a South Island Takahe when accelerated to supersonic velocity.

Railguns are used in New Zealand for air safety reasons. Bird carcasses are fired at the windscreens and engines of stationary planes to test that they could survive bird-strike damage during landing or takeoff from Pukeko- and Takahe-prone NZ airports.

Too bad. In GTA5, trains can’t be stopped by anything.

Specificity is no guarantee of veracity.

Specificity is the soul firing bird carcasses into engines

The beauty of the San Luis Obispo railgun was that there was no ammo, just a timeout between shots. This railgun from a rando van has limited ammo.
