WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - One of two main BNSF Railway tracks in northwestern North Dakota has reopened after a derailment.

Two trains were operating on adjacent tracks when they derailed Friday afternoon. Forty-three cars went off the tracks. No one was hurt, and no hazardous materials were spilled.

Railroad spokeswoman Amy McBeth tells the Minot Daily News that one of the main tracks reopened Sunday, and the second should reopen in a few days.

Amtrak passenger trains also use the tracks. Amtrak for a time used buses to move passengers between Williston and Minot, but spokeswoman Vernae Graham says operations are now back to normal.
