FARGO, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s congressional delegation says rail safety training is being held in Fargo for emergency workers.

The event is slated on Tuesday and Wednesday and is hosted by GATX Corp. and BNSF Railway.

Officials say the training will focus on the proper handling of railcars.

The training is part of an ongoing effort aimed at helping emergency workers deal with incidents like the fiery oil train crash outside Casselton in December that left an ominous cloud over the town and led some residents to evacuate.
