Train Derailment Causing Major Delays

Dozens of people crowded the lobby Thursday night at the Amtrak station in Rensselaer, many of them affected by the CSX train derailment in Montgomery County that morning. Some had arrived from Buffalo on school buses. Others were continuing their journeys on charter buses called in to help move passengers to their destinations.

One man from Syracuse had driven to the station where he was waiting to get a train to New York. A woman from Watertown was also headed to New York, her first time riding a train, though most of her trip so far had been by bus.

According to the train status board in the station, Amtrak's westbound service has been canceled. The affected rail line was expected to be closed all day Friday.
