Keeping your distance from train tracks and trains is no joking matter. Watch this news clip video about Rail Runner near-misses that reminds us all of the importance of being smart and staying alert around train tracks. https://www.krqe.com/news/albuquerque-metro/rail-runner-surveillance-reveals-close-calls-with-trains/1726771211
