Disabled train blocked Agawam-West Springfield bridge

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A disabled train blocked travel on one of the two bridges between Agawam and West Springfield for hours Tuesday.

CSX railroad spokesperson Rob Doolittle told 22News that the 98-car train blocked the crossing on the West Springfield side of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Bridge, also known as the Strathmore Bridge.

Doolittle said that the train had a mechanical issue, which was made worse by the weather. Crews went out to repair the train, and it rolled out at around 3:00 P.M.

He said that they apologize for the inconvenience.
