Light-rail train to and from Historic Folsom has resumed for the first time in nearly three months.
Sacramento Regional Transit officials and police greeted travelers Wednesday morning as service to Folsom was resumed Wednesday morning.
Service to the historic district had been disrupted since Dec. 12, when a semi-truck transporting an oversized load ran into the crossing gate mechanism at the Natoma Street intersection in Folsom.
The crash caused the gate to come in contact with the overhead wire on which the trains operate. That sent high voltage into the signal and grade-crossing protection systems, according to RT.

The damage, described as some of the worst the light-rail system had experienced, prevented trains from reaching Sutter Street in Folsom.
