Were there any notes about the railroad crossing? Only the bridges were out of bounds on the map. Looking at green, the design assumes the orienteer would cross the railroad. Not sure if we are actually supposed to do that, but I didn't see anything in the rules

I didn't see any notes of any kind, and went by my memory of before because I wasn't sure and didn't want to be in trouble for crossing it :-/ I didn't even think about it until on course and faced with the issue. I'm almost certain it was a rule at least the first few times I was here.

(This aside from the fact that the train track corridor usually belongs to the company - like Norfolk Southern or whatever - and it's actually trespassing to cross except at designated locations. I saw at least one no trespassing sign when looking for my crossing place.)
