Trains are big!
Trains are quiet!
Trains are fast & can take up to a mile to stop!
To the pledge!
Don’t walk along train tracks. Walking near or on tracks is against the law and trains can overhang tracks by at least 3 feet. TRAINS ARE BIG!
Cross railroad tracks only at places marked by a crossbuck, lights or a gate. And look both ways before you cross. TRAINS ARE QUIET!
Wait for the train to pass. When lights are flashing or the gates are down, wait for the train to pass. Even if you are in a hurry, don’t try to beat the train by rushing across the tracks. Trains can take up to a mile to stop! TRAINS ARE FAST!

Top tips about railroad safety
  • Only cross train tracks at a designated crossing. Designated crossings are marked by a sign, lights or a gate.
  • If lights are flashing or the gate is down at a railroad crossing, wait for the train to pass completely, the gates to lift and the lights to stop flashing before crossing. It is never ok to rush across and try to beat the train. Trains may be closer and faster than you think.
  • Allow enough space for your vehicle to completely clear the entire railroad crossing, not just the tracks on either side, so even though you clear the tracks, you may still get hit by the train.
  • If you are using a cell phone, headphones or playing a game on your mobile phone, remember: Heads Up, Devices Down when you cross the tracks. Once a train starts to brake, it can take a mile for the train to stop. So when you see a train, its already too late for it to stop for you. Headphones should be removed, so you can hear an approaching train.
  • Don't be tempted to walk along the train tracks. It might be a shortcut, but it is dangerous and not worth the risk. It is also against the law to walk on the track and the land around it because it is private property.
