Train Derailment Under Investigation in Lincoln County

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office says the southeast Nevada county road from Elgin to Carp is closed and then sometime today it will be partially closed for the next 7-10 days. The closure is because of a train derailment Wednesday. There are construction equipment, train cars, and debris blocking the road. Union Pacific Railroad is working to get the area cleaned up and the road back open. There are no reports of injuries, and the cause of the derailment has not been determined.
