CSX crews and others also worked nonstop throughout the night Saturday, despite occasionally heavy rains, to replace the damaged track. By 8 a.m. Sunday, workers had put down about 20 prefabricated track panels, each about 40 feet long. Sease said the panels fit together "much like a model train set," allowing crews to reconstruct the track quickly.
The six derailed engines were righted and on the tracks by 8 a.m. The undamaged rail cars had been removed the day before. The remaining cars were upright Sunday and had been moved to the side of the track.
