Train derailment spills grain in Blue Earth, Minn.
Union Pacific spokesman Mark Davis says the 73-car train was carrying corn from Fairmont, Minn., to Blair, Neb., when it happened about 5:20 p.m. Sunday. Nobody was hurt.
The cause is under investigation, and there's no estimate yet on how much grain spilled.
Davis says crews worked through the night and had about half of the cars out of the way by morning.
He also says they need to replace about 1,400 feet of track and two road crossings because of the damage.
The line carries around two trains a day. He says crews hope to reopen it late Monday or early Tuesday.
