* There's a science-fictiony variation in the Creator/RobertAHeinlein juvenile ''Literature/StarmanJones'' in which the title character takes a shortcut through a railroad tunnel. The danger is not that the train will actually ''hit'' him--it's a magnetically levitated supersonic [[CoolTrain "ring train"]]--the danger is that if he's still in the tunnel when a train comes through, the shockwave in the confined space will pulverize his insides and kill him.

He makes it through, but a few minutes later is suddenly knocked unconscious and temporarily deafened by a train going overhead that he never heard coming.
