Jeff DeGraff, spokesman for Union Pacific, said an investigation continues into a freight-train derailment north of Pleasanton that occurred at approximately 2:30 a.m. May 15. However, preliminary indications are that ongoing inclement weather might have played a role.

DeGraff said that the 60-car train was hauling gravel and that 32 of the cars left the tracks. Of those cars, 27 overturned. No one was injured.

Crews continue to brave heavy rain and thunderstorms as they attempt to salvage the gravel and right the cars. DeGraff said that approximately 500 feet of track also was damaged and that the line -- which runs parallel with U.S. 281 in that area -- remains closed. Union Pacific aims to have it reopened by Saturday morning, he said.
