July 30, 2015 | KULR|MILES CITY, Mont. (AP) – Officials in Miles City are unhappy after BSNF Railway lifted its self-imposed speed restrictions and is now moving trains through town at speeds of up to 60 mph.
Miles City Mayor Butch Grenz says town residents are upset that trains are moving faster than 30 mph. Miles City sits between the rail hubs of Glendive and Forsyth and BNSF’s rail bisects the town. Grenz notes one crossing doesn’t have crossing arms.
