Train derailed

Photo by Jason Kaplan Around 3:15 p.m. on Tuesday, a CSX freight train carrying hazardous materials struck a forklift and derailed in New Windsor near Walsh Avenue and River Road. By Wednesday morning, the engine had already been moved back on the tracks, but RJ Corman Railroad Group continued to clear the rest of the derailment. They used a bulldozer and crane to remove a shipping container from the tracks and turn it right side up.
