DENAIR, Calif. (AP) - Amtrak says it has "partially" restored train service in the Central Valley, but its Denair station remains closed.
Service was disrupted between Modesto and Merced Sunday when a freight train derailed in Denair, damaging track. Amtrak passengers were being bussed around the damaged track.
Amtrak announced Monday that train service has been restored, but trains won't stop at Denair until repairs of the platform are made. Amtrak is offering refunds to passengers whose travel plans are still disrupted by the Denair station closing.
Ten freight cars went off the track and crashed into a self-storage facility. No injuries were reported.
Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the accident. About 40 trains, including 12 Amtrak trains, pass over the tracks a day
