  • This photo taken Thursday evening near Roosevelt Park shows five youngsters walking on the railroad tracks across the viaduct from east to west.
    Although there are signs along the track that say “No Trespassing” this is of great concern to the Devils Lake community, especially in light of BNSF wanting to raise speed limits of trains through the city from 30 mph to 60 mph.
    According to Devils Lake Police Chief Keith Schroeder getting caught trespassing on railroad property is a Class B Misdemeanor that carries a punishment of up to 30 days in jail, a maximum $1,500 fine or both.
