RANDALL — Despite initial law enforcement scanner reports of an estimated 200 gallons of spilled locomotive fuel, the Randall Fire Department crew that responded to the incident along Highway 10 said the spill was considerably smaller.
Deputy Fire Chief Rick Gaffke said his crew of nine firefighters never had to pull their lines and the spill had stopped by the time they arrived. Gaffke said a fuel line leak on the CSX Corporation locomotive apparently caused fuel to spill through an overflow pipe. Gaffke said he didn't know how many gallons had been spilled but doubted that it was 200 gallons.
The incident was first reported at about 8:30 a.m. Thursday, according to Amy McBeth, a spokesperson at BNSF Railway.
McBeth said the eastbound train was headed from Dilworth to Kansas City, Mo. when the fuel spill was discovered and the train was stopped.

In a split second, Jamie Houdek's life passed before his eyes.
The Little Falls man told his wife that he was going outside to pick corn on their field, where they raise a dozen beef cows.
Jamie Houdek hopped on his tractor and went to work. He got about halfway around the field and then stopped.
"I wanted to get a bunch done that day and so I jumped off and I left it running, which I shouldn't have," said Houdek, "I knew better."
"I went to grab a cob of corn out of the husking bin of the picker and as soon as I reached for it my right hand got caught in the rollers of the husking bed and began pulling my right hand and arm in."

It was a close call Wednesday morning, when a semitrailer got stuck on the BNSF railroad tracks on North Eighth Street in Brainerd and a train was approaching.
The train, loaded with coal, was stopped about 100 feet before it would've struck the semitrailer - averting a big mess and possible injuries.
Brainerd Police Chief Corky McQuiston said responding officers immediately noticed an eastbound train entering Brainerd from the west approaching the location where the semitrailer was stuck. Officers requested that the dispatchers make emergency contact with BNSF to notify the train engineer that the tracks were blocked.
The semitrailer driver, Monte Johnson, 51, of Davenport, Iowa, was unfamiliar with the terrain hidden by the accumulated snow around the railroad tracks, and drove the truck across an area of the tracks not suitable for vehicles to cross. The semitrailer became stuck on the tracks facing westbound, directly in the path of the oncoming eastbound train.
