HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A Virginia-based rail company says a freight car has been railed again and at least seven others have been removed from the tracks after nine cars derailed in Pennsylvania’s capital city.

A Norfolk Southern Corp. spokesman tells Pennlive.com the railroad hopes to move all damaged cars away from the tracks so it can reopen the rail line late Tuesday or early Wednesday.

The cars derailed along a sharp curve in Harrisburg Tuesday afternoon. Pennlive says the damaged cars will remain there until a later date.

Norfolk Southern says the tracks are being inspected for damage. The cause of the derailment hasn’t been determined.

The railroad says it never alerted city fire officials of the derailment because it happened on private property, didn’t involve dangerous materials and no one was hurt.
