Louisville Zoo reports air pressure problem with train

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A week after the Louisville Zoo's new trains began taking passengers, there is a problem with one of the trains.

The Zoo says that at 4 p.m. Thursday, a train engineer noticed a drop in air pressure on the blue train.

Zoo officials say any air pressure loss activates the brakes automatically. They say all failsafe systems operated properly. The train stopped and the passengers exited the train.

The maintenance staff checked both the blue and the brown trains.

As of Friday morning, the brown train is running and the blue train is still being looked at.

These new trains replace the old train that crashed in June 2009 when it flipped on its side, sending 22 people, including children to area hospitals.
