WEWS-TV reports the Wayne County Sheriff's Office says the train traveled roughly 60 miles (96.6 kilometers) from Willard in Huron County to Wayne County on Tuesday before CSX was alerted and the train stopped at a crossing. A sheriff's official says the men then got off, but were found and arrested on trespassing charges.
Authorities say the men had hung onto the side of the train while it traveled at speeds of up to 50 mph.
When the dispatcher asked what they were doing on the train, one of the men said it was "better than walking."
