A tree limb and a train conspired to knock out power to about 1,400 Oldham County homes during the weekend.
About 5 p.m. Saturday a branch fell on power lines near the train track in Buckner, blowing a transformer, Oldham County Dispatch Second Shift Supervisor Tom McCain said. A few minutes later a train came along and dragged the power lines, ripping them down, taking out power to about 1,400 homes.
McCain said LG&E returned power to all but 135 homes in about two hours. The others came back online that night, he said.
