First of all, I want to note that train is not my first option and I'm gonna try some other methods. If I can get SN I will, if testing with the night-night method or shallow water blackout works I'll do that. However I don't know if I'll be able to do that, I'm having some trouble with both of those methods and it's unlikely that I'll be able to get SN (I still live with my mom and it's a bit hard to justify getting 1kg of food additive in the mail).
There is a spot on the other side of my city where I can easily climb onto the tracks and no one should be able to see me. I've measured the speed of trains in that area, and it's been consistently ~100km/h for the train I intend to catch and even higher for other trains.
Doing some reading, it seems the best way is decapitation, 100% death rate and (allegedly) painless. Is it actually painless and how long until blackout after being decapitated?
Another very worrying thing is the front of the locomotive, which is this one:
E.464.603_Asti.JPG

that front thing is very low, so I'm afraid it'll hit my head and not allow my neck to touch the wheels, instead throwing me off the track.
This is another locomotive common on the line that I can access:
linea-s1-ancora-a-mezzo-servizio-dopo-lo-stop-del-passante-trenord-promette_77345d80-250d-11ed-bff7-0e80cf2b0b3a_1920_1080_v3_large_libera.jpg

This one seems to have a higher front thing (not sure what it's called), so this one would probably work best.
The other option for me would be to just stand on the tracks, but it feels very risky because it would not guarantee my death. If it was a flat surface then maybe, making sure my head hits the train first, but both of those locomotives have those front bits sticking out.

a few points...
1) If it goes wrong, you are going to have a life an order of magnitude worse than you think you have it now. Physical pain on top of your emotional pain. Every. Day.
2) you will fuck up the driver, and all the passengers will have their day ruined.
3) splat

I don't think I have a lot of options beside SN, night-night, shallow water blackout, and this. If I can't get SN or perform the other two properly, this is the only thing that remains. And if I position just my neck on the rails, only my head and neck should be in danger, meaning it's pretty much guaranteed to avoid damage to the rest of my body.

I really hope that you don't do that. That is not a good idea, too many variables, high failure risk, serve structural damage to you. Study, yields better outcome.

I'll consider all other methods. I've seen so many articles talking about people dying by getting hit by a train, about EMTs not being able to do anything for victims, that it seemed like a good method

Dude it's one thing to get fitted for angel wings, and quite another to rot in a nursing home for decades.

My only concern is "the front thing" you're talking about. Not sure if my neck and head fit under it and whether it would make death more painful by first squeezing my head under it, or like you said pushing my head off the track.

SI will kick in for the seemingly eternal time it takes for the train to squish you. It it doesn't work, or you chicken out, well have fun in hospital...either being kept alive as a chunk of meat, or a padded cell.
I'd rather jump from the Italia Viaduct tbh...at least it's certain death

I feel like a lot of people have a disproportionately skewed view about this method. Big claims coming out of my mouth, though, with no other evidence other than the plethora of gore videos I've seen of people dying by train.

That front thing could be a problem if you're aiming for decapitation, but if you somehow, someway get hit by a train a while before it slows down at a train station, you will die really quickly. Keep in mind, it's a huge metal machine travelling at really high speeds.

Decapitation, from what I've seen, LOOKS relatively painless. My reference is beheading videos (I've seen way too many). Death arrives shortly afterwards. I haven't done the research, but apparently a lot of people believe that you remain conscious for a few seconds before you die. This was apparently based on how back in the day, people executed by guillotines.. Their heads would be seen to move - more specifically their eyes. This happens with relatively quick decapitations. Take that as you will.

I think it's best to look at research more than mine, or other people's words. But, from what I've seen.. At least in my opinion, I'd much rather die by train than jump off a building. But I think SN remains King, for now.

I hope I helped.

Focus your energy on the other methods. Do what you know will work.

I definitely think you would have issues for a successful CTB with this style of train having the cowcatcher on front. Decap is the only assured way of CTB with a train. Letting the train just run into you is too big a gamble.
