is it legal to pick up track nails by the railroads?
Can you go to jail for picking up the old rusted nails beside the railroad tracks?

Yes you could be prosecuted for picking up spikes (not nails, they're spikes). They are the railroad corp's. property and not yours. It would be like someone going into a farmers corn field and stealing a bunch of ears of corn.

It would actually be considered theft if you don't have permission of whoever owns and maintains that particular rail line. You have to also keep in mind that they own a certain range AROUND the tracks, not just the tracks, so you are likely going on their property when you find these track nails.

I wouldn't want to be caught in possession of them if a train derailed. The tracks are private property (owned by the railroad) and you are subject to arrest for trespassing. So, in a short word, illegal.

It depends on where you are from, in Texas anything that belongs to the railroad, falls of the railroad or is lying near the railroad that was property of the railroad is theirs and you have no right to take it or trespass onto that land..

By law if you are walking beside the railroad tracks or down them you are trespassing and can be arrested. Not like you will be, just can be..... the same as picking up the nails (spikes, etc.) not likely anyone will do anything but you could be arrested for stealing.
