Keep Safety Top of Mind

  • Stand back at least 25 feet from all railroad tracks.
  • Railroad tracks, trestles, yards and right of way are private property – do not trespass.
  • Never assume tracks are abandoned or inactive – ALWAYS expect a train.
  • Be a safe and considerate driver – do not pace the train.
