Grain train derails North of Friends Landing in Montesano
The third train derailment in three weeks occurred in Grays Harbor County Thursday afternoon in West Montesano.
It happened just after 4 p.m. at the Devonshire Road crossing near Central Park drive, leaving 7 grain cars off the tracks North of Friends Landing. No intersections were blocked, crews from Genesee & Wyoming were on scene early Thursday to assess the damage. They were in town already, having just reopened the tracks near the Wal-Mart intersection of the Gateway Plaza in East Aberdeen after a train derailed last Friday. A grain train derailed South of State street in the early morning hours of April 29th as well.
