Grain Train Derails in Minnesota

Ten hopper cars carrying wheat derailed west of Viking, MN

Work crews spent nearly two days making repairs and clearing a grove of trees along the railroad tracks of the Northern Plains Railway west of Viking, in northwestern Minnesota, after 10 hopper cars carrying wheat derailed and blocked the rail line, reports KFGO.

Repairs were completed and the tracks were reopened Saturday.

Crews had to build a road to the area that had to be cleared where the cars are stacked so equipment could be brought in to remove the grain.
