YouTube live stream shows if train tracks are blocked in Northwood

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - The Northwood Police Department have developed a unique way to inform police, fire fighters and city staff if the train tracks on Wales Road are blocked.

A YouTube feed has been set up to view a live stream of the railroad crossing, and Northwood mayor Edward Schimmel wanted to let the public in on it.

Mayor Schimmel says the feed can also benefit truck drivers, bus drivers and others who can't turn around if they are stuck by a train.

You can subscribe to the feed and check it whenever you are planning to go in that direction.
