As a result of increased publicity, railway safety was extremely critized during 1974 despite the fewest fatalities among employees ever recorded. The year did show a large increase in derailments but better reporting and more business may have increased the number significantly. Trucking safety is as bad, or worse, than railways but they don't receive the same criticism or bad publicity. The article includes a five year chart (1969-1973) of train accidents for the railway industry.
