BOARDMAN, Ohio (WYTV) – Snow and ice have made driving treacherous in the Mahoning Valley this week, and that danger extends to train conductors.
In Boardman Wednesday morning, crews were sent out to clear the ice off the train tracks near the Home Depot on Southern Boulevard.
The move was a precaution so that the train could safely make its way down the line. As the tracks were cleared, the train was able to move along.
The train was never at a complete standstill while blocking traffic on roads that crossed Southern Blvd.
