Rail Operations Set to Resume at NY Site of Train Derailment


CSX expects rail operations to resume at the site of a derailment where one of the company’s freight trains collided with a vehicle at a Hudson Valley crossing.

Company spokesman Rob Doolittle says CSX continues to repair damage caused Tuesday when the train hit a boom lift that had stalled on the rails in Newburgh. The train’s three locomotives and 14 of its 77 cars jumped the tracks, with the lead engine coming to rest across a road. Officials expect the road will remain closed for another couple days.

CSX says that crews were repairing the damage on Thursday and expects rail operations to resume later in the day.

Authorities say two train crew members and two CSX employees working on a rail-operated machine on an adjacent track suffered minor injuries.
