Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla said the device, resembling two sticks of dynamite with wires, was detonated by a bomb squad and turned out to be harmless.

Mr Abdalla told WTOV-TV in Steubenville, Ohio, that he suspected it was a prop left behind by a film crew that was in the area earlier this year making Unstoppable, a thriller about a runaway train.

Wheeling & Lake Erie Railway workers had found the item earlier in the day along tracks near Rayland, about 120 miles east of Columbus.
