Coal train derails at Isom; site cleared quickly



Workers from CSX and Donahue Brothers Emergency Railroad Wrecker Service prepared equipment to right a train car that derailed at Isom when a rock slide in a cut near Walters Branch knocked it off the tracks. The crossing on KY 15 near the junction with KY 7 North was blocked for a couple of hours in the early morning, but was reopened about 6:30 a.m. The cleanup work was finished by Tuesday afternoon.
