November 11, 2003|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

CSX completed yesterday the cleanup after a train derailment Sunday in Sykesville, a spokesman said.

All of the freight cars that derailed were back on the track and ready to move on to their destination, and coal that was spilled in the derailment was cleaned up, said CSX spokesman Dan Murphy. He added that CSX was in the final stages of repairing and resurfacing the track with the goal of resuming train traffic last night.

A freight train with two locomotives and 143 cars was traveling from Cumberland to Curtis Bay when about 20 of the cars derailed Sunday morning in Sykesville. The town's Main Street was closed for about three hours. No one was injured.
