The Nation

June 23, 1986

Trains began running again on a double set of railroad tracks in northern Arizona that were blocked Friday night by a 36-car derailment, officials said. Santa Fe Railroad spokesman Tom Buckley said it might be several days before all the wreckage in the area of Parks, Ariz., was cleared. No one was injured by the derailment, but a 30-mile stretch of Interstate 40 between Flagstaff and Williams was closed for about six hours because officials were concerned about possible chemical leaks from several derailed chemical tankers. The tankers were intact, however.
