GENEVA - Problems at a train crossing in southwestern Lincoln have apparently improved substantially after residents complained vocally and county officials threatened to try to throw railroad executives in jail. Geneva residents Earl Dean McWhorter and Dale Reed said Tuesday that they aren't seeing trains blocking the railroad crossing at the intersection of Ky. 698 and Rube Brown Road like they used to. McWhorter and Reed told Lincoln County magistrates on Aug. 13 that trains would regularly stop across the crossing - the only way across the tracks for miles around - and block traffic for abnormally long amounts of time.
