Train Derailment Cost $2.2 Million, Says CSX
A complete report could take one year, according to National Transportation Safety Board.
CSX has estimated the cost of last week's train derailment in Ellicott City, and the subsequent clean-up, at $2.2 million, according to a statement from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).
In addition to the cost, NTSB announced that the initial investigation of signal systems and personnel is complete and all rail equipment was recovered. The time estimate of the derailment was also changed to 11:56 p.m. Monday, Aug. 20, which is slightly earlier than initial reports.
