    An Amtrak train derailed in central Vermont on Monday, Oct. 5, 2015, officials said.

    Amtrak says modified passenger service on the Vermonter route will resume following the train derailment in Northfield.

    The company says the northbound service between Washington and St. Albans will operate normally on Thursday. Passengers traveling south will be transported by bus to Springfield, Vermont, or New Haven, Connecticut, where they will board other trains.

    A passenger train headed from Vermont to Washington, D.C., derailed Monday when it hit rocks that had fallen onto the track from a ledge. Seven people were injured. Amtrak says all those injured were released from the hospital the following day.
