Train car containing sodium hydrosulfide moved from Montana train derailment site

The train car containing sodium hydrosulfide closest to the Yellowstone River has been successfully moved and will be re-railed and moved to a secure location, Montana Rail Link (MRL) announced.

MRL also said chunks of asphalt have been found down river which may be associated with the derailment. A sample of the asphalt is being investigated.

In addition, water quality sampling is being performed by a contractor on behalf of MRL, with oversight from the Montana Department of Environmental Quality.
