Train carrying Boeing 737 fuselages derails in Montana

ALBERTON, Mont. - A train carrying Boeing 737 fuselages derailed in Montana, tossing the plane bodies into a nearby river.

Montana Rail Link spokeswoman Lynda Frost said that no one was injured when 19 cars from a train derailed at about 4 p.m. on Thursday about 10 miles west of Alberton.

The train was traveling westbound from Kansas City, Kansas to Renton, Washington, where the 737 is built. The fuselage is built at Spirit Aerosystems in Wichita.

Three cars, which were carrying mostly aircraft parts with some soybeans and denatured alcohol, ended up on the water.

Wildlife workers closed the Alberton Gorge portion of the river between St. John's and Tarkio Fishing Access Sites to safely remove the debris.

KTMF, Missoula, contributed to this report.
