NS Derails 33 Cars in Pennsylvania

No hazardous materials were involved in the derailment Monday afternoon of a Norfolk Southern train between Harrisburg and York, Pennsylvania. There were no injuries.

Officials said 33 cars derailed and plastic PVC pellets spilled from one car.

Because some cars displayed hazmat placards a hazardous materials team was dispatched to the scene. But no hazardous materials were spilled.

Cleanup of the derailment site continued into Tuesday. An NS spokesman said the eastbound train had three locomotives and 130 cars, including 104 loaded cars.
