Train Derailment Near Monroe County

UPPER MOUNT BETHEL TOWNSHIP — A train is off the tracks in Northampton County and crews are working on how to clean up the wreck.

Crews say a Delaware-Lackawanna train derailed around 4 p.m. Saturday behind the Slateford Inn south of Stroudsburg on the Monroe and Northampton County line.

Days after this train derailed on its way to Scranton, the cars still sit tipped over. Hundreds of tons of sand dumped just next to the Delaware River.

Victor Kopczuk lives in the apartments overlooking the Slateford Yard train tracks just outside of Monroe County. This is where things got off track Saturday afternoon.

“All of a sudden, this little bit louder clang and bang than usual and someone yelled ‘the train’s going over,’” Kopczuk said.
