It is fortunate he didn't succeed. Sadly, there are people with some problems, for whom the current situation makes it even worse! :( Fortunately, most of us have our wonderful hobby to keep us busy during these trying times.
Even if he had managed to ram it, it would have been OK. There’s few things that can stand up to a train. However the steel hull of a ship that large is probably one of them. I doubt it would have punctured it, though it might have made a nice dent.

I should have said, "In addition to his other problems, he should have laid off the Netflix earlier. Maybe the conspiracy theories on Reddit too." I doubt he will be watching much in the next 20 years, assuming he is found fit to stand trial.
