SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey Transit train conductor took off his tie and used it as a leash to rescue a wayward dog named Shelby on the tracks.

NJ Transit spokesman Jim Smith said the train crew on Saturday was alerted that a dog was on the tracks near South Orange station. The crew spotted the dog and called to have the rail traffic stopped.

Conductor Howard Kempton sprinted toward Shelby.
