To Roane County CAG
March 22, 2010
Tonight, as locomotives were moving empty railcars within the rail yard, 2 locomotives had 6-7 wheels leave the track. All cars remained upright, there were no injuries, and no fuel spilled. The Norfolk Southern crew is coming in tonight to move the locomotives and the repair crews arrive in the morning. The track is expected to be repaired by noon or 2 pm at the latest. This does not affect the north or south entrance to the plant. A root cause team and rail inspections will begin tomorrow. Again, all of this was onsite in the rail yard as Norfolk Southern pulled empty cars.
