A question for regarding trains in Central Wisconsin?
My question is, why are the Freight trains there traveling alot slower than they used to.
I can recall being 7 and 8 years old going up there, trains used to fly by anywhere between 45-55mph
But after going up in 2012 after 8 years from the last time being there, trains now seem to crawl through Necedah anywhere between 15-30mph. but Why I ask. Safety Reasons? or a explanation of why the railroad lowered the limit. I do know its a rural area that the crossings up there used to have just crossbucks and a stop sign. And they recently installed gates at the crossings. a few years ago.
So if anyone has an answer, I'll take it.
Btw if you need a comparison I got two videos taken from two different times I posted to Youtube
Footage all recorded in the same area.
