The Latest On a Trains Derailment

Posted: Updated:


After a little more than two days of closures, the Montana Rail Link was able to resume traffic earlier than expected after 24 cars of a freight train derailed Wednesday morning.

The 66 car train overturned along an embankment four miles east of Superior. Four cars, two of which were tankers ended up in the river requiring heavy equipment to remove. Some traffic was re-routed while other trains were held on the side. Crews were supposed to repair the tracks on Monday, but worked late Thursday and early Friday to fix the route.
