NS derailment at Altoona

Saturday morning Sept 20, NS train 18N (Bellevue OH-Wilmington DE autoracks) derailed while crossing over at CP-ALTOONA interlocking in Altoona, PA, derailing approximately 27 cars and blocking all three main tracks.  Rail traffic was delayed and held from Pittsburgh to Harrisburg, and several priority intermodal trains detoured via other routes.  RJ Corman and Hulcher crews worked over the weekend to clear the derailment and repair the track.  Traffic began to resume through Altoona Sunday afternoon.
