Railroad tracks are on private property owned by the railroad company. This means that you may not play, walk, in-line skate, ride a bike or a snowmobile on railroad property. In addition to it being illegal to trespass on railroad property, it is also unsafe.
There are places where the railroad tracks cross roads or streets. Many of these railroad crossings are marked with one of the signs or signals in the table below.
|This sign means you are coming to a railroad crossing. Always look both ways and listen carefully to be sure a train is not coming from either direction before crossing the tracks.|
|Many railroad crossings have a gate with flashing lights that close when a train is coming.
|Some crossings which don't have gates may have this sign. When the lights are flashing, a train is coming. You should wait until the train or trains have passed before trying to cross the tracks.|
