NS Train Deails in New Castle, Pa.

No injuries were reported and no hazardous materials were involved in a Norfolk Southern derailment on Wednesday night in New Castle, Pennsylvania, on the Youngstown Line.

The train was reported to be carrying soybeans and paraffin wax.

Police said nine cars derailed near Montgomery Avenue and Lafayette Street around 11 p.m. The tracks there span the Mahoning River, but no cars fell into the waterway.

News reports indicated the derailment resulted in the halting of a train in Lowellville, Ohio, which blocked grade crossings in the downtown area as well as well as River Road near Struthers.

NS said the track affected by the derailment had reopened by Thursday afternoon.

However, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said a portion of State Route 18 between Mt. Jackson Road (Route 108) and Blanchard Street remained closed to traffic.
