Trains Running Again, Cleanup Continues on Derailment
Trains are running again after being stopped for a day because of a train derailment. Union Pacific investigators still don't know what caused the accident. Many of the derailed cars were refrigerated and carrying various perishable foods. Even though the track is repaired, the demolished train cars remain. A spokesman says it will be several days before they will be removed. Some 40 trains were stopped waiting for the tracks to be fixed.
