PHILIPPI, West Virginia — A railroad track in Barbour County where a train derailed has reopened.

Appalachian & Ohio Railroad spokeswoman Bonnie Hackbarth says crews reopened the track Saturday following repairs.

Eleven of the train's 90 cars derailed Friday. The train was hauling coal.

Hackbarth says there were no injuries and no environmental damage from the spilled coal.

The cause hasn't been determined.

Appalachian and Ohio's website says the company operates 158 miles of track between Grafton and Cowen and primarily hauls coal. The company's other freight includes logs, lumber and chemicals.
