Boeing Co. said it's assessing damage to a trainload of aircraft components that derailed earlier in the week, according to The Wall Street Journal on Saturday. The accident, which could delay production, occurred Thursday when a 19-car BNSF Railway train with aircraft components derailed near Rivulet, Mont., on its way to final assembly plants in Washington. The aerospace giant has "deployed experts to the scene to begin a thorough assessment of the situation," a Boeing spokesman told the Journal. "Once we determine the extent of damage we will assess what, if any, impact there will be to production." The train was carrying six complete 737 fuselages, fuselage panels for 777s, and wing parts for 747s, according to the Journal.
