TRE Closing Fort Worth Railroad Crossing Due To Wrecks

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – The Trinity Railway Express is closing a railroad crossing in northeast Fort Worth because people keep driving around the gates.

The TRE says drivers at the Galvez Ave. crossing repeatedly go around or through the gates when trains are approaching.  As a result, there have been four wrecks at that crossing in the past ten years according to the TRE.  That compares to eight wrecks at the TRE’s other 36 crossings in the same period.

The crossing is located on Galvez Ave. immediately west of Riverside Drive.  The TRE is putting up concrete barriers on Galvez today.

    UMMM, train versus car? Train wins every time.

    Why don’t they shut down the special kind of dumb train drivers going too fast without steering and Fred-Flintstone brakes. Who made this tinker toy railroad KING OF THE ROAD? If OUR cops would seize the train videos before tinker toy train cops dub the tapes after collisions they would see the junk signals failing.
