Stalled train blocks off M-28

A train stalled on M-28 in Sidnaw is blocking off the entire road, forcing traffic to use an alternate route.

The Calumet Post of the Michigan State Police was notified of the incident early this morning. Troopers have been in contact with officials at the Escanaba/Lake Superior Railroad Company, who should be on the scene within the hour to begin moving the train off the roadway.

In the meantime, Troopers will be at the site of the blockage, directing traffic to an alternate route through town.
