Recovery Continues at Lynchburg, Va., Derailment


In close coordination with first responders and investigative agencies, CSX has completed the safe removal of the non-derailed cars from the scene of the Lynchburg, Va., derailment. This alleviated blocked road crossings in the community and provided personnel better access to the derailed cars. Efforts continue to re-rail the remaining cars.
 
The company is cooperating fully with all investigators on site to understand the cause and impact of this incident. The National Transportation Safety Board is leading the investigation on-scene and will hold a news conference today at noon ET. The press conference will be held at Lynchburg City Hall, 900 Church Street, in the City Council Chambers.
 
CSX is also implementing a comprehensive environmental assessment and protection effort that includes land-, air- and water-based assessments of potential impacts from the derailment, including measures to prevent dispersal of any contents from the train that may have entered the James River. This work is being done in coordination with federal, state and local environmental authorities.
 
The CSX Community Outreach Center will be open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the Wingate Hotel, 3777 Candlers Mountain Road, to provide assistance to residents and businesses impacted by this derailment. In addition, citizens can contact 1-877-TELL CSX (1-877-835-5279) for assistance. CSX continues to appreciate the support and assistance of the Lynchburg Fire Department, Lynchburg Police Department, and additional first responders from surrounding communities who are helping to ensure public safety.
 
CSX is committed to fully supporting the emergency responders and other agencies, meeting the needs of the community and protecting the environment.  We will provide additional reports as information becomes available.
 
The train involved in yesterday’s derailment had two locomotives and 105 rail cars. The train originated in the Bakken shale region in North Dakota and was handed off to CSX at Chicago en route to Yorktown, Va.
