RICHLAND HILLS, Texas (AP) - A freight train derailment in the Fort Worth area left several cars off the tracks and interrupted passenger rail service.
Crews worked Monday to fix the torn-up tracks in the Richland Hills area. The cause of Sunday night's derailment is sought.
The tracks are used by Trinity Railway Express commuter trains on routes linking Fort Worth and Dallas. TRE is co-owned by Dallas Area Rapid Transit.
TRE was not operating Monday in either direction west of the Richland Hills station, but was offering bus service to help passengers connect to other routes.
