Today, Monday, August 21, North America will experience a remarkable solar eclipse, with many people planning travel and events to view the moon covering part or all of the sun.
CSX wants to help ensure that community members are safe while they enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Many visitors to towns and cities on that path may be unfamiliar with the presence of railroads in those areas, so we wish to stress the importance of staying safe on or near railroad tracks.
Every three hours, a person or a vehicle is hit by a train, according to federal statistics.
Knowing that many communities in the eclipse’s path of totality have organized events and activities to observe this monumental event, CSX has ramped up efforts to promote safety around rails in the communities in which it operates.
For those seeking the best view of this historic event, CSX recommends eclipse-watchers stay at least 50 feet away from railroad tracks at all times to ensure that their viewing experience is a safe and enjoyable event.
Railroad tracks are an unforgiving environment for pedestrians at any time, and walking or standing on tracks is never safe because trains can come from either direction at any time with little notice.
The only safe place to cross railroad tracks is at designated, marked crossings.
