The irony here is that even with all of those accidents posted above, railroads are STILL the safest form of ground transportation around--- makes you think.

The chart on La. accidents (126) tells me:
 
Out of the 126 reported accidents
27 happened at lights only      21%     Less than 1% pedestrian - 1
16 gates         13%     Less than 1% pedestrian - 1
60  crossbuck only         47%     Less than 1% pedestrian - 1
15  stop sign only     12%
5    other          3%
1    nothing          Less than 1%
 
Crossings that were not protected with gates which include:  crossbuck only,
stop signs, other, nothing, accounted for the majority of accidents/fatalities.
Louisiana might top Texas this year for accidents and fatalities.

Here is a picture of the latest derailment. Baxter Ca. a run away train derail and two crew members die. To me a number of derailment is high this year, why?

Derailments are high because there are a lot of trains and a lot of track ain't in the best shape you can imagine.
 
This one was not, however, related to track conditions.  Probably. Appears they lost brakes on the train on a heavy downhill grade (that's a guess - news report says the crew noticed "something wrong" in a tunnel, and the head-end crew tried to apply brakes and even threw the loco into reverse before they derailed on a curve at around 50 mph, when recommended amx is 25 mph just there) and built up too much speed.
