On Thursday July 31st at about 3pm a CSX train hauling garbage parked on the tracks in Middle Village. A strong smell of rotting garbage covered the area and the 90 degree heat only made matters worse.
Homeowners directly adjacent to the tracks off Eliot Avenue starting calling to report the stink. At about 4:15pm the train moved back to Glendale then returned later that afternoon.
