Crime Stoppers: Train Vandals

By Gene Birk | 

Bowling Green police are investigating damage at the L&N Depot Railpark on Kentucky Street. Sometime Tuesday or Wednesday, August 29 or 30, someone damaged the historic train cars parked at the depot.

More than $3,000 in damage was caused when the perpetrators threw rocks at the cars, breaking windows and chipping paint.

Among the cars damaged are a rare 1949 Duncan Hines diner, the only completely intact L&N sleeper of its kind, and the oldest L&N presidential car in the world.

Ten windows were broken and several rock pecks were caused, as someone stood on the railroad tracks and threw the rocks over the fence.
