The United States Circuit Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit has held in a recent case that the Federal Railway Safety Act preempts local ordinances regarding railroad obstructions and railroad safety. See CSX Transportation, Inc. v. City of Plymouth, 86 F.3d 626 (6th Cir. 1996). Therefore, the provisions in this chapter have been repealed.
