Sitting on the railroad tracks

Our goal is to minimize the impact of our operations while working as efficiently as possible to serve local customers. For safety reasons, it is sometimes necessary to keep a locomotive running to maintain engine temperature to keep fluids warm in cold weather and maintain brake pressure throughout a train. Safety is our highest priority and we apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused nearby residents.”
