No, each police department handles it their own way. Some have a regular number for non-emergencies, and some direct the non-emergency number to 911 dispatchers after hours. Some don't have a number dedicated as "non-emergency " so you either call their main local number or 911. It's all up to the individual police department to decide how they want to handle calls.

While the RR does not own ALL the trains on it's tracks, it DOES know exactly where every train on their tracks are at (almost) all times.

That being said, there might not be time to stop a train for a car stuck on the track. Get out of the car fast and THEN call 911. Some trains take over a mile to stop, depending upon the grade and speed of the train.
