South Airport Road Crossing Malfunction?

Unread postby KingsleyRailFan » Tue Sep 24, 2019 2:50 pm

The BATA Bus Dispatch Center in Traverse City here keeps mention something about the 'South Airport Road Railroad Crossing'... One of them in a video from a few years back was really sketchy and re-activated itself after the train went thru... maybe it's malfunctioning again? Can anyone from TC verify This?

The railroad authorities are aware, and have plans to fix it soon, central dispatch said, but another train is expected to cross the area at about 4:12 p.m.

Interesting that they put in the article exactly when the next train was expected, 4:12pm. :)
