New York Railroad Law
Sec. § 53-E
Unlawful Interference With a Railroad Train


A person is guilty of unlawful interference with a railroad train when he wilfully with intent to disrupt, delay, or disturb service, places, causes to be placed, drops, or positions an object or objects of any kind, on, under, or upon the tracks which does or could cause physical damage to railroad equipment or property or physical injury to passengers or both. Unlawful interference with a railroad train is a class D felony; provided, however, that such classification shall not apply in any case in which an offense having a higher classification for the purpose of sentence is charged under any other provision of law.
