Always Expect a Train

Important tips from Operation Lifesaver:

Remember, a typical mile long train can weigh over 6,000 tons. When traveling at 50 mph such a train requires up to one and a half miles to stop, even under the best of emergency braking situations. When it comes to railroad crossing safety, the bottom line must be "Always Expect A Train."
