BOURNE, Mass. — Concrete cylinders were found lying in the railroad tracks near Mass. Maritime Academy in Bourne Thursday morning and police are investigating the incident.
A train was moving slowly enough to stop in time after spotting the debris at the Buzzard’s Bay.
A state police spokesperson told Boston 25 News no one is in custody and Massachusetts State Police police are investigating.
It is illegal to trespass on railroad tracks and the incident is being investigated as a possible attempt to derail a train.
Four 200-pound concrete blocks were found on the tracks and blurry surveillance video stills show a silhouette apparently moving the concrete blocks.
We’re told passenger trains don’t come through the stop in the winter after the Christmas Town trains end for the season.
The blocks were removed Thursday.
