Stalled train repaired, moved

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE - 2/13/18, 1:45 p.m. - Sources now say the train has moved and residents are able to access the interstate.

UPDATE - 2/13/18, 12:45 p.m. - According to a press statement from Montana Rail Link, a MRL train stalled at approximately 7 a.m. east of Bozeman due to mechanical difficulties.

According to the company, the train could not be relocated due to the nature of the mechanical issue, which led to heavy train congestion in the area with local crossings being occupied for an extended period of time.

“Our team is working hard to clear the congestion as soon as possible,” the company said in an email. “MRL strives to be a good neighbor to the communities we serve and to minimize our interface with the public at private and public crossings.   We will continue to strive towards this goal and apologize for the delays incurred by the general public in the area of today's incident.”
