Landslide blocks train in eastern Montana

BILLINGS, Mont. — A landslide is blocking a BNSF Railway freight line in eastern Montana.

The slide happened at about 10 p.m. Wednesday about 10 miles west of Miles City.

Dirt covered about 800 feet of railway that runs along the Yellowstone River.

BNSF spokeswoman Maia LaSalle says crews were still working Friday to clear the tracks, however the slide activity has not been stabilized.

Freight traffic was being re-routed around the blockage on Montana Rail Link tracks.

No trains were in the area at the time of the slide and no injuries have been reported.
