In Connecticut, two Metro-North workers are being hailed as heroes for rescuing a dog on the train tracks. “Pepper” got away from his owner about a mile from a train station during the morning commute last week. He was running up and down the tracks in a stretch where trains go 70 miles an hour, so an engineer called Dispatch. Two signal workers were nearby and got train traffic to stop for the pooch and his frantic owner. They told NBC4NY they managed to corral the pup, pick him up and reunite man and dog.
