Amtrak is up and running again after a Union Pacific coal train derails east of Glenwood Springs. The 104–car train was eastbound when 18 cars derailed Saturday afternoon near Bair Ranch in Glenwood Canyon. No coal spilled into the river, but 200 Amtrak passengers traveling east on the California Zephyr were stranded overnight near Glenwood Springs. They were transported by bus to Denver Sunday morning and officials with Amtrak say the train is back on schedule. No one was injured in the incident and the cause of the derailment is still unknown.
