S'port train crossings open after two-hour train delay

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) – A mechanical problem with a Union Pacific train stalled traffic at three major intersections for a couple of hours Monday afternoon.

Raquel Espinoza with Union Pacific says the train was heading to Fort Worth when it experienced a mechanical problem that forced the train to stop.

When the train stopped, it ended up blocking the train crossings at Youree Drive at Flournoy Lucas, Bert Kouns north of the Inner Loop and Ellerbe Rd. just north of the Inner Loop.

The train was repaired and the crossings cleared about 5:00 p.m.
