Scare on Northern Nevada Train Tracks

RENO, Nevada (KOLOTV.com) -- Monday, January 22, 2007:

Trains are moving once again east of Reno, after a frantic event stopped rail traffic Sunday night.

As you can see in the picture on the left, emergency crews rushed to the train tracks near the Tracy Clark power plant, after a train conductor thought he may have hit a motorcyclist on the tracks.

Police, firefighters, paramedics, and even a helicopter responded to look for any potential victims. After a search, they found the man who the conductor saw near the tracks; he wasn't hurt. His motorcycle was found nearby.

A short time later, the train conductor fired up the engines, and continued down the tracks.
