Question:

If your vehicle stalls on railroad tracks and you spot a train approaching, what should you do?

A Get out and get clear of the tracks.
Explaination

If your vehicle gets stuck on a railroad track and a train is approaching, do not spend any time trying to free your vehicle. Instead, get everyone, including yourself, out of your vehicle and walk quickly at about a 45-degree angle to the tracks in the direction of the approaching train. That way, if your vehicle is hit, you and your passengers will not be struck by flying debris. Call 911 once you are at a safe distance from your vehicle. Never try to outrace a train. A train traveling at 60 mph can take more than a mile to come to a complete stop.
