Five excavators at work in this still shot from 10­11 television.

A crew worked feverishly Sunday to clean up the wreckage of 41 coal cars that derailed at 1 a.m. near Fairbury.

The full-loaded cars left the tracks three miles southeast of Fairbury, just off of U.S. Highway 8, according to 10/11 television.

Jim Headley with the Fairbury Journal News told 10/11 that coal cars were stacked 20-30 feet in the air.

Salvage equipment converged on the wreckage and worked furiously to clear the tracks.

No one was injured. The cause was not reported.

The derailment happened near the back yard of Mike and Jami Diller, who already feel neglected. A bridge that the Dillerís need to drive in and out of their home has fallen into disrepair, and neither the city or county will repair it. The Dillers told 10-11 that they worry about what will happen in an emergency. The derailment was an uncomfortable reminder.
