Some Railroad Trivia.


13 pedestrians were killed by trains in Missouri in 2011.
20 pedestrians were killed by trains in Missouri in 2014.
Since 1997 more than 7,200 pedestrians have been killed by trains in the United States, averaging almost 400 per year. Railroads refer to them as trespassing fatalities. Every two hours a person or vehicle is hit by a train in this country. Every two weeks a train carrying hazardous materials derails in the United States. If you read old newspaper articles and obituaries from the 1800s to the early 1900s you would notice a lot of people that were killed by trains, kids playing on the tracks, people sleeping on the tracks, bums falling underneath the boxcars or railroad crew getting crushed between the cars while working.

The U.S standard railroad gauge (distance between the rails) is 4 feet, 8.5 inches.
Ties are spaced 19.5 inches apart.
If you are walking alongside the tracks and you count 3,249 ties that means you walked a mile.
Each tie is soaked in creosote and is roughly 8 feet long, depending on where it is used, and weighs between 100 and 175 pounds.
According to the EPA, used railroad ties are not legal for residential landscaping because of possible carsinogens to humans.
A derailer is a device on the tracks that deliberately derails trains that enter unauthorized areas.

More than 47 percent of Missouri is situated on the Ozarks Plateau.

People first arrived in what is now Missouri around 12,000 B.C.E and lived by hunting mammoths, mastodons and giant bison.

There are 114 counties in Missouri.

Missouri has a longer stretch of supporting the winning presidential candidate than any other state.

Missouri always had among the most permissive alcohol laws in the United States. Missouri voters rejected prohibition in three separate referenda in 1910,1912 and 1918.

As of 2008, Missouri had the lowest cigarette excise taxes in the country.

160 sounds kind of a low number to me for the entire state but that's the only number I could find.
