I feel you guy; and know how you think, me too. The Scenario is a grid down incident, the airplane crash is from mostly an EMP for both the Plane and Train. In the Airplane; not much can be done except look for any survivors that’s in the same or close condition as you. After gathering survivors that can walk out, find out who is headed you way for the longest haul? If and that would be a big If, a Doctor in on that flight, give him an hour to help those he things will live, tell everyone we are going find help, and do that. I always carry at least my EDC, and if I’m travelling a long distance my BOB.
While most likely, the majority of the people would be dead or dying in a plane crash, a few do survive from time to time. In that type of Scenario, we find ourselves and a handful of others. Now if there was a Doctor that survived, I would press him to go with us as far as he would. Then I would set each member of the surviving group to task of finding any supplies from the wreckage and divide them up equally among the survivors. Help they create their own EDC or BOB from the luggage and packs found. Any and all food snacks and water we could carry safely. Check and see if everyone has the right foot gear to set out on our trip of survival. and of course any clothing according to the season.
It may seem heartless and mean to leave the injuries behind, but they are dead already and don’t know it. The mountains are full of predators and it want be long before they find the site, and we best be long gone by then, and start my trek home.
In the case of a train stopping due to an EMP, todays train are Deiseal Electric. They would shut down, I don’t think the electric breaking system would work but the manual hydraulic breaking system would. But that would take time to activate and the train may have slowed down on its own by then. The danger would be in a possible emergency stop, which would throw people forward out of their seats, beds or chairs. Most I would think would survive this type of incident with only minor injuries. Now; if the trailing cars behind the engine were to heavy, it may cause a derailment, but that hasn’t happened.
Now would be tedious task of finding people that would live in my direction with out people knowing that I’m a prepper or survivalist. Here say you have a hundred plus people on the train, and most people will stay or want to stay with the train, thinking that help is on the way. Here again; getting to know your porter is in your best interest. From the get go, I talk and make conversation with him of her, tip well, help him or her in small ways when possible. I do this now when I ride trains. Then if the unthinkable happens, I’ve got someone that help me? It’s better than going up to a total stranger and asking for extra food and water. And if not too old, I would ask him or her if they wish to come with us. Making the food and water thing a lot easier to obtain.
I would then look for those elusive Survivalist/Preppers, and see if there are any on board. This is one reason I carry a AmRRON/Redoubt flag with me and use it as a bandana with the logo showing, then walk around talking to people. If there is preppers or survivalist on board, they will recognize the flag and know I’m one of them. After that I would go to the baggage car and retrieve my EDC, BOB or both and secure my weapon and ammo. Then after gathering my group, keeping it small, head out.
