Residents board the Operation Lifesaver Safety Train

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Coastal Empire is crisscrossed with railways, so Norfolk Southern gave law enforcement and residents a look at how they operate to help keep drivers safe.

Passengers boarded in Garden City for the Operation Lifesaver Safety Train. Everyone got to look at things from the view of the train crew, through a camera mounted on the engine. The coordinator says it is a good learning experience.

"We want to educate law enforcement and the rest of the community about the dangers of railroad safety to keep everyone safe," said Jennie Glasgow, Operation Lifesaver.
