According to Federal Railroad Administration records, only a single CSX freight train uses a 25 MPH-maximum speed railroad line through Lacona, NY, but that lone train was all it took to kill a local resident whose snowmobile became stuck on CSX tracks in the Oswego County community Sunday night at about 11:00 P.M.

The death of a Sparks, GA city employee who was accessing the city’s water treatment plant Friday at about 3:30 P.M. via a dangerous and unguarded railroad crossing that the city council had considered closing in the past has both voters and elected officials lamenting action not taken, but others asking what course of action could be taken due to limited access to the facility.
