Trains take a long time to stop; always be alert around railway tracks, crossings, stations.  If you’re wearing a hoodie and headphones, keep your eyes up and look around now and then.  Even if the driver sees you, they can’t stop the train quickly enough to avoid you.  Be smart, be safe.  Don’t become a train driver’s recurring nightmare.
