NEAR FISH CREEK, Montana — Crews on Sunday planned to start remove three Boeing 737 fuselages that fell down an embankment into the Clark Fork River. The airplane components came to rest in the river after a freight train derailed on Thursday.

The 19 derailed cars have been cleared from the tracks. Trains had been rerouted to other lines since the derailment several days earlier.

A Montana Rail Link spokesperson said crews hoped to get one of the fuselages out of the rive Sunday. Crews plan to continue working through at least Tuesday.

13 of the cars were carrying aircraft components, soybeans and denatured alcohol — six other cars were empty. None of the soybeans or alcohol spilled.

The train was headed for Renton from Kansas City.

Officials are investigating what led to the crash.
