Only 2 Derailed Cars Remain in Train Tunnel

July 23, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

Crews worked to pull the last two smoldering boxcars from a downtown Baltimore tunnel, days after a train derailment and fire shut down parts of the city and disrupted Internet service nationwide.

Above the 1 1/2-mile-long tunnel, a broken 40-inch water main continued gushing onto downtown streets and public works officials said damage to the street and the tunnel could be significant.

Also, a storm drain that collapsed after the 60-car CSX train derailed Wednesday may undermine the city's light rail system, which was partly closed pending a full inspection, officials said.
