A 10-day injunction over conversion of the Wakefield Steam Train’s tracks to a bike trail has left opposing sides arguing over what work is permitted.

Chelsea wants to tear up the old tracks, saying they are damaged beyond repair by repeated washouts and landslides. It wants a bike trail instead, but this has some opposition.

On Wednesday, a judge ruled that for the next 10 days Chelsea and its contractors are limited in what they can do: They can remove rails and ties, but not bring in heavy equipment to level the ground afterwards.
