HARRISBURG — A derailed freight train in central Pennsylvania has also derailed regular Amtrak service between Pittsburgh and Harrisburg.
An Amtrak spokesman said this morning that today's regular 7:20 a.m. train from western Pennsylvania to the state capital is being replaced with bus service.
A strong gust of wind apparently derailed a freight train on a bridge near Harrisburg on Monday, sending two shipping containers into the Susquehanna River.
Norfolk Southern spokesman Rudy Husband tells The Patriot-News of Harrisburg that crews will be at the bridge early Tuesday to clear the disabled train from the tracks.
Amtrak's website indicates there will not be a regular afternoon train from Harrisburg to Pittsburgh on Tuesday, either.
