Trains are notorious for stopping at Hackberry during the busiest time of day. And for long periods of time. Usually when we are rushing to a meeting. Or when students are rushing to class. It can ruin your day.

Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox explains the issue.

"We were notified today of a mechanical failure and this will happen. We have taken action when and where possible, but we are limited by legal jurisdiction. NFS has been open to exploring solutions. It is a problem."

Meanwhile, we sit and sit and wait.
