Safety Rule of the Month - History Archives

January 2020

Walking on, or even being on, railroad tracks, except in direct line of duty, is prohibited. If duty makes it necessary to be on the tracks a sharp lookout must be kept for trains approaching in either direction. Any time is train time on a railroad track, and even on double track movements may be made in either direction.  Walk beside the track, in clear of engines and cars, instead of on it, when possible. 

[Louisville & Nashville Railroad Co. Safety Rules, Effective October 1, 1957.]
