BOZEMAN – Rail traffic is up and running in Livingston and Bozeman after the derailment that shut down the line on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Montana Rail Link officials say crews were able to clear the 39 cars that went of the track on Tuesday in order to get trains moving through once again early Thursday morning.

However, MRL crews are still working to clear the coal on the side of the tracks, that process is expected to take at least another week.

MRL is still investigating the cause of the derailment.
