Rail cars cleared from tracks in Acampo
In this News-Sentinel file photograph, railroad cars are stored on the east side of Kennefick Road on April 21, 2011. About 500 railroad cars were stored parallel to Kennefick Road in Acampo beginning in early 2009 due to the economic downturn. Now, neighboring residents are happy to see the cars cleared away.

Eastern Acampo residents who live adjacent to rarely used railroad tracks along Kennefick Road are glad that rail cars are no longer parked in front of their homes.
However, some residents said they got used to the parked rail cars, which remained on the tracks for about two years during the depth of the recession. Initially, residents were vocal in their complaints that the rail cars were an eyesore that would encourage crime, and invite transients to sleep in the cars.
