Police in Brunswick, Maryland, have increased their security after the U.S. National threat that was made last week.
Chief Milton Frech said railroad assignments are of high nature. He said Brunswick officers are working very closely with Homeland Security regarding the safety of Marc and CSX trains.
A Congressional intelligence leader said recent terrorist "chatter" that triggered a worldwide alert last week is eerily similar to the warnings that went unheeded before 9/11.
The Department of Homeland Security is beefing up its presence at airports, train stations and other travel hubs in the United States in the wake of global travel warning imposed on all U.S. citizens.
