Rail traffic in northern Montana is shut down due to a derailment near Malta.
According to BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas, 10 cars carrying soybeans derailed at about 10 a.m. on Wednesday.
The derailment shut down the main line and a side track.
Crews are currently shoving cars off of the tracks and expect to have the line open shortly after midnight.
On average, 35 trains use the route each day, including two passenger trains.
The 104-car train originated in North Dakota and was headed to Seattle.
No injuries have been reported.
