ONR switches messed with again

News Release

*********************

Between 4:00 pm 27th Sept and 9:00 am 28th 4 ADLAKE locks were removed from ONR switches located in the west end of the ONR rail yards.

The switches are used to direct trains within the yard.

The danger of this action lies in the fact that if the switch is moved, even an inch, a derailment could occur.

There was no damage or evidence to the switches to indicate that the locks were pried or cut.

Cst Christian Elia is investigating.

Seems to me that if there is no evidence of cutting the locks or damage to the switches a key had to be used.I think that would really narrow down the search.

Totally agree with forreal 10/1/2012,looks like to me they are trying to derail their own train,maybe to get more work,who knows?Pretty extreme measures just to get more work,OR then again,it could be some loser just mad and cant deal with the fact that the ONR IS STILL FOR SALE !
