I have noticed on the CCET facebook page there is some issues going on with trespassers on the railline from Newtown to points out east that has caused concern for the crew of the CCET. Apparently someone has been shooting at the train near Newtown which is very dangerous. The tankers are for the most part empty but I sure there could be gases in the tankers depending the last time they have been used. Then there is the crew in the powers which are at risk. On top of that people have been in the yard climbing on cars and that is trespassing for sure anyone on railroad property is a violation. The police have been notified. If you want to take pictures or video of any train please stay away from the railroad property keep your distance.

Be aware reading a Facebook page a few days ago, for some reason a CCET employee attacked a railfan video tapping a train at the old Ford Plant in Batavia Ohio. Not sure if the rail fan was on railroad property or the side of the road. Either way not sure why a railroad employee would punch a railfan video taping a train.

I know the CCET employees have been shot at in recent weeks which is never good news and people are getting into their yard climbing on trains. So they are threaten by the public. Maybe someone has more information on this issue.

So what I found out yesterday from the NS guys is if you plan on filming any CCET trains on the Peavine stay on public property. Do not get on the railroad property. The CCET people are watching trespassers very closely. From what I understand shots have been been fired at trains, the safety of the the CCET staff is in danger plus the have had some spray painting on the engines and cars in storage. Vandals has the railroad on edge and they just want to secure the line. NS has this going on in the Sharon Yard but they have security and it stopped pretty quick. Being on railroad property and doing any damage will result in one big fine and jail time.

As far as the assault in Mt. Orab not sure what is going on there the NS engineers didn't know much about it between the CCET and the police.
