    A Union Pacific freight train passing a grade crossing is seen beyond a flashing light on a safety gate June 16, 2006.

    A stopped Union Pacific Railroad train blocked traffic in Fremont for more than two hours on Wednesday morning, according to police.

    The stopped train was first reported just before 7:30 a.m., blocking Stevenson Boulevard and Walnut Avenue, which run parallel to one another.

    The blockage led to heavy traffic on Mission Boulevard between Las Palmas Avenue and Niles Boulevard.

    Just after 9:45 a.m., police said the train was moving again.

    Union Pacific did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
