Train causes traffic problems in Mendota

Posted by wlpo on May 27, 2009

Crossing the tracks in Mendota shouldn’t be a problem anymore. Several crossing were closed for much of Wednesday morning after a wheel broke on a train car, stranding the train.

Steve Forsberg with Burlington Northern Santa Fe says they were able to fix the wheel before noon. After making minor track repairs, the track reopened around 3pm.

What caused the wheel to break isn’t clear yet.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
