Frequently Asked Question

Walking on railroad tracks, or the property (right-of-way) on either side of them, is illegal.

That's correct. 
     It can take a mile or more to stop a train, so a locomotive engineer who suddenly spots you ahead has little chance to miss you. Railroad property is private property. For your safety, it's illegal to be there unless you are at a designated public crossing.
