City's rails get sharpened

People driving over the bridge on Uinta Drive during the past couple nights may have noticed a very brightly lit train sitting in the Green River rail yard.

It may even have resembled city building lights or a row of street lights they were so bright. What it was, was the Loram rail grinder train coming through town, grinding and maintaining the main rail lines as it goes through Green River and on toward Denver.

The rail grinder comes through Green River about once a year. So if residents didn't see the train lighting up the yard, one could probably witness it again in months to come.
