In a side impact, the passengers would be severely injured and perhaps expire from the blunt trauma of hitting the railroad ties. The creosote offgassing on a hot day into the passenger compartment could scarcely be beneficial.
> I believe you’re thinking of the sleepers outgassing— not the ties (or rails). Actually, wooden railroad track sleepers might not be such a bad thing for cushioning an impact. The wood would likely splinter or crumble or collapse absorbing some of the force. Well, more than a tie or a rail would, no?
