(Excludes highway-rail crossings)
NOTE: Train accidents are events involving on-track rail equipment that result in monetary damage to the equipment and track above a certain threshold. In 1998, that threshold was $6,600. Most trespasser, nontrespasser, and employee fatalities result from events that are categorized as incidents (rather than accidents).
