Several hundred customers were without power for several hours Monday, because one of the train cars clipped a power pole.

Electric crews with the village of Greenwich are installing a new power pole Tuesday.

CSX is also back on the scene Tuesday and doing more clean-up work.

Police added N. Kniffin remains closed and are asking people to avoid the area. .
