This train has been stopped for over the past 5 hours? On loop 494 in front of kingwood drive and the entrance of Kings manor...

WOW! I can't believe that stupid train is still stopped there! I came north from Humble, on 494 around 12:30 this afternoon and it was stopped then. I gave up and drove on north to North Park to get back into Kingwood.

That was a really long train to begin with and blocking to major entrances into Kingwood is not a minor thing.

Sure hope it's gone by rush hour(s) in the morning.

Train had a mechanical problem that prevented in from moving. UP came in around 1:30 ish and split the train to open KW Dr. Before the repairs were complete the engineers ran out of hours. Repairs were completed and a new crew arrived just a bit ago. They are in the process of re-coupling and moving the train now.

Just think how it would have been back when there was no way out other than south to 59...Used to worry me back then.

I was about to say...we got out of the neighborhood at 4:30pm without any issues on KW Dr.

Thanks Andrew! Glad it wasn't someone being hit by the train or something

WOW! We turned of 494 to go down Hamblen at about 2:00 this afternoon and when we went over the RR tracks the train was right there. Scared us to death. Thank God it was stopped.

I wonder if it is broken down. That's a long time for it to be just sitting there blocking traffic.

Read 3 posts up... Train had mechanical problem that prevented it from safely moving...

Usually that long = a human fatality. If it's just technical problems, thank God.
