44 cars worth of coal was dumped Saturday morning. From the photos, it looks like all four tracks were damaged in the accident. Amtrak NER 71 was cancelled on Saturday, and 88 was cancelled on Sunday, but it looks like Sunday's southbound NER 157 was able to get through.


Two grade crossings in Suffolk remain closed as of Monday morning.
