Explanation

If your vehicle stalls on the railroad tracks and you see a train coming, you and all passengers should immediately get out and walk away from the tracks at about a 45-degree angle to the direction that the train is coming from. (If the train hits your vehicle, it will cause debris to fly in the direction the train is moving.) Never try to race a train. At 60 mph, most trains need more than a mile to stop after the engineer applies the brakes.
