CSX Rebuilds Northwest Ohio Track Where Train Derailed

UPDATED: Wednesday February 19, 2014 9:22 AM

Railroad workers have rebuilt track at the site of a northwest Ohio train derailment.

A spokeswoman for CSX Transportation Corp. tells The Blade in Toledo that it could take weeks to determine why 19 train cars jumped the tracks late Monday in the Wood County village of Tontogany, about 25 miles southwest of Toledo. No one was hurt.

CSX says one of the cars was hauling scrap metal. The rest were empty.

The track was expected to reopen Wednesday.

The sheriff's office says debris from the derailment caused minor damage to several nearby buildings, including a firehouse.

The derailment happened at a switch for a track that allows trains to pass one another on the mostly single-line route.
