A rail line that closed in Central Washington after a 24-car derailment has reopened. Burlington Northern-Santa Fe spokesman Gus Melonas said the line reopened at 5 p.m. Sunday.
No one was hurt when the 110-car train traveling from Florence, Minn., to Seattle derailed Saturday morning near Wilson Creek, about 18 miles north of Moses Lake. However, it blocked the single track, used by about 20 freight and Amtrak trains daily.
The train was carrying corn, which was taken to a nearby grain elevator.
