2 derailed cars on track at Atlanta airport to be moved

ATLANTA (AP) — Crews are still working to repair the damage after an Atlanta commuter train derailed on the tracks at the world’s busiest airports.

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority said two cars on an out-of-service train derailed around 9 p.m. Tuesday, leaving regular trains unable to reach the station at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

There were no passengers on the train Tuesday night and the driver wasn’t hurt.

A crane to move the detailed cars was expected late Thursday morning.

Shuttle buses are being used to transfer passengers from a nearby station to the airport.

The cause of the derailment is under investigation.

The disruption comes less than three weeks before Atlanta hosts the 2019 Super Bowl.
