Locally, about 10 years ago, a guy tried to steal the electric cable along an abandoned rail line. That particular line might have been abandoned, but a local hydro dam was still using the cable to service the main line. Guy won the Darwin and Edison awards for that one.
Further back, some kids ignored many large signs and climbed on top of some rail cars, reached up high, and got arced. I felt bad for them, but not for the ambulance-chasing scumbags who tried to sue the railroad afterward.
