Montana Rail Link spokeswoman Lynda Frost said Saturday that it’s unclear the type of challenge involved because it’s the first time the company has faced such a task.
No one was injured when 19 cars from a westbound train derailed Thursday about 10 miles west of Alberton. The cause of the derailment is under investigation.
The train carried six fuselages. Three others also fell off but stayed on land. Frost says Boeing has had workers at the scene assessing the damage.
The fuselages were headed to Renton to be assembled into completed airliners.
