Might have been an interesting size-up on Thursday as 19 cars of a train derailed on the banks of the Clark Fork River in Western Montana on Thursday scattering the fuselages of six Boeing 737’s the train was carrying.

Crews on Sunday will attempt to remove three Boeing 737 fuselages that tumbled down a steep bank and into the Clark Fork River in western Montana after a train derailed.

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.
