ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An East Albany neighborhood watch leader is concerned that a line of railroad cars could be a crime problem in his community.

East Town Sub division Neighborhood Watch President Robert Montgomery says more than a dozen chemical tankers have been parked on the tracks off Don Cutler Drive for more than a year.

Montgomery says he has talked with everyone from city officials to Georgia And Florida Railroad Officials about the parked cars, but they're still there.
He says the railroad cars cut their neighborhood watch in half.

East Town Subdivision Neighborhood Watch President Robert Montgomery said "The main concern is it blocks the view of the neighborhood.  Watching out for bad guys that walk the alleys at night, and during the day, too.  It's very important to be able to see."


Montgomery is asking the railroad move the cars west into a wooded area.

City officials tell us they contacted Georgia Florida Railroad officials almost 9 months ago about the empty cars. 

We contacted Georgia Florida officials today, and they said they had no comment.
