Trains were halted Thursday while a high school volleyball team used railroad tracks for a team photo.
A Union Pacific railroad official says this shows how seriously the railroad takes safety issues.
It happened near North Bend, after rail workers discovered the North Bend Central volleyball team was on the tracks.
Union Pacific spokesperson Mark Davis says the U.P. operates about 50 trains a day in the North Bend corridor, calling the area extremely dangerous because trains are constantly coming and going.
School district superintendent Dan Endorf says none of the volleyball players were punished, and that no teachers or administrators were part of the photo shoot.
