HARRISBURG - A derailed freight train in central Pennsylvania temporarily interrupted Amtrak service between Pittsburgh and Harrisburg from Monday night to Tuesday morning.
A strong gust of wind apparently derailed the train while it crossed a bridge on Monday, sending two empty shipping containers into the Susquehanna River. Crews cleared the disabled train Tuesday morning from tracks near Harrisburg.
More than 650 Amtrak passengers were bused between Harrisburg and Pittsburgh on Monday night and Tuesday morning. Amtrak expected to resume service Tuesday afternoon. Officials said they were working to retrieve the containers from the river. - AP
