Judge executive asks for repairs to be made to "dangerous" railroad
MURRAY, Ky. - The sounds can be deafening, but Mark Schaeffer is used to it. He lives on Highway 121, just down the road from this railroad crossing in Murray.
Finally, Wednesday he got word the state and railroad owner, Kentucky West Tennessee Railway agreed to join forces to repair it. Elkins sent letters and emails asking for the state and KWT to begin construction, but there was discussion over who owned the crossing. Since the railroad was there first, KWT is responsible for the upkeep.
