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

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.
