"Fire Is Out, Norfolk Southern Begins Cleanup"

"Federal investigators seeking the cause of a North Side train derailment are taking a close look at the tracks, after early scrutiny of the crew's actions and the train itself revealed no glaring problems."

"'The track is of particular interest to us,' said Earl Weener of the National Transportation Safety Board at a briefing tonight.

NTSB investigators stressed afterward that the investigation is in its infancy and could take up to 18 months to conclude what caused the Wednesday morning derailment near the state fairgrounds."
