A railroad signal was the victim of vandalism that apparently involved the use of a gun and a blunt object to damage several pieces of equipment.
Georgia-Florida Railway, 1019 Coast Line Blvd., Albany, reported Wednesday that the damage occurred at the crossing control where the railroad track crosses Old Doerun Road.
An employee reported that the power box that controls the signal arms and a panel box on a power line were damaged, and that a light that lets conductors know that the signal has power apparently was apparently shot with a gun.
