Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I seem to recall being told the London Underground had a policy of immediately getting the driver out of there.

Not the same situation as an overland train: there's always someone else around (and close) to handle things.

The French railways have the same policy, after an accident happened to a driver who had similarly witnessed a suicide.

As far as I know, for Paris Metro drivers, seeing a suicide in a career is pretty much a certainty.
